The Call for Entry

There was no formal, public call for entry. According to the venue statement: “MADE at the Foundry stems from a collaborative partnership between MADE Makerspace, located in the Delmar Market District, and the Foundry Art Centre. Featuring Makers, Artists, Designers, and Entrepreneurs, this exhibition will examine the unique interconnections between these creative disciplines. Works created by MADE members and studio artists, along with tools, technology, and other supplies will be on display. MADE at the Foundry places a strong emphasis on the importance of interactivity, innovation, and community engagement within the creative economy.”

MADE Makerspace is a location that “hosts classes and offers membership for all kinds of makers to gain access to a variety of equipment, including woodworking, laser cutting, sewing and quilting, screen printing, welding, machining, waterjet cutting, and 3D printing.”

The Ceramic Art Pieces

“Cup Set With Mold & Cast” by Emma Nowlin,
On the side wall I found the only ceramic exhibit item.  The connection to Makerspace is that the mold for these cups was made by 3D printing.  There was no further information about the details of the casting process.
