Form Studies

Form Studies

This series of studies specifically focuses around the hand and how hands and form influence each other. This exploration led to research into physical interactions and how choices in the creation of a form lead to desired interactions for the user. 

Here's my full process video, which includes my water pitcher explorations.



Below are scans of my sketchbook explorations of each clay and paper model

All of my models, explorative and final

The form studies began by playing with clay and creating 'squeeze' forms. These forms allowed for me to see how my hand was directly changing the form of the clay.
