Slipcast Pouring Vessel
A playful tabletop pourer intended to enhance the act of pouring.
Prompt | Timeline: 3 weeks
Design a pouring vessel that is able to hold at least 8 oz. of liquid. There should be indications of how to use your pourer.
I decided to create a playful pourer that would lend the user to being more involved in the process of pouring. I was interested in the idea of creating a dual spout, each at a different length. These distinct lengths lead to two different experiences of pouring, as the longer spout would have a further trajectory and vice versa. I matched the angle of the spouts with the angle of the body on their respective sides. The taper of where the body meets the spouts also indicates where the user should grab the pourer.

I explored a variety of glaze finishes.
