Roto

The initial brief in this second year University module required a new design for Denby Pottery. It was suggested that redefining breakfast was a key element within the design process and the quote “hand to mouth” had to be considered.

The outcome was the Roto, a Biscuit Barrel with a unique twist on a normally mundane product. The barrels faceted surfaces gives the product a playful element for the user, allowing it to be placed in any position. The body of the 3D representation, was created using a 3D printer. The cork stopper was made using lazer cut letters for the motif, and finished by hand. The body of the barrel would be slip cast if produced for commercial sales.
