Finally, Hangover and Sober have arrived!

It took a few printing attempts, but I finally got a chance to shoot some pictures Smile

Here is Sober, as standalone espresso cup with a cute bulgy form:

And it's predecessor:

I am very happy with the results! Very Happy

However, I think the Glazing could still be a lot better.

I am still a bit puzzled why the glazing is so difficult though, when I look at what is commercially available in ceramics, way more detail and complexity should be easily achievable.
Then again I know nothing about actually making ceramics Wink

The major thing I have learned from this project is that for the current glazing to be applied properly, is that there can be absolutely no sharp angles.
And while it does said so in the design specs for ceramics.
It turned out the minimal curve radius of 2 mm, also was not enough.

All in all, sooo freakin' cool to print in ceramics! Cool

Cheers!

edit: The topic subtile keeps disappearing?

They look very smooth, very nice prints. Hopefully the glazing will be fixed before release.

Funny concept the hangover!

I agree that it's a pity that ceramics turn out so bold. The lack of possible detail makes it virtually impossible to create something pretty. In your concept it kind of works, although the design could be far more refined if sharper edges / thinner walls were possible.

I like it a lot !

- the glazing here is way more thicker then on other designers models - unfortunately that's a roulette result..

Thanks all Smile

Duann: Actually I prefer my hangovers small and short Wink

Mike: Yes they are very smooth, there is some very minor pitting and bumps but with minor improvements the quality should be good.

Gijs: I agree, more detail would be awesome, in this case I tried to work with the limitations, and I'm personally very fond of the "bold" look Smile

Asher: Actually the glazing on these is really thin, but the whole surface is well-coated. Also it looks like the pre-glaze was applied thinner than on other prints I have seen.

It might look a bit too bold because the cups are quite small, and I used average wall thickness of plain ceramics cups I had around the house. I forgot how much, but I will measure in soft and hardware to check how thick the glaze is applied.

But I also saw a glimpse of the initial misprints of these cups and those had way more pre-glaze and glaze applied.

Cheers
