Recap: 3-D Printing of Ancient Pottery from Cetamura

Published October 27, 2015

Please enjoy these photos from the opening of 3-D Printing of Ancient Pottery from Cetamura, prepared by Dr. Nancy de Grummond and Windham Graves.

The Museum of Fine Arts (MoFA) recently hosted a new exhibition that combined Facility for Arts Research (FAR) technology with classical archaeological reconstructions from sherds. The shapes of ancient pottery from Cetamura were 3-D printed using FAR technology, and Classics Professor Nancy de Grummond and her team of students were in charge of preparing the models for the show. FAR Studio Technician Windham Graves 3-D printed ancient artifact shapes that have been reconstructed from excavations in Italy at Dr. Nancy de Grummond‘s dig site. The two of them have worked together to integrate past and present art and artistic technology.

The show opened October 16, 2015, followed by International Archaeology Day on October 17, 2015. The exhibition will be open to the public until November 15, 2015. Museum tour guides are available for both individual and group tours. The MoFA exhibition sponsor is the Peace on Earth Gift for 2015.
