The Culture Creative , a branding consultancy, has launched Aux, as in auxiliary. Think of it as an incubator for experimental objects. Its first is a vase, Stellar Fragments, that Sean Dougall and Andrew Paulson of Dougall Paulson designed to combine handcraft and technology. Slab-rolled clay is digitally scanned, 3-D printed in glass-infused vinyl, then cast in porcelain. The 3 ½-inch-high result represents a shard from a distant star, fallen to earth.
