Catie & Jordana Water Bottles

WaterBottle Presentation

WaterBottle Presentation

  1. What inspired this (Kristina’s assignment)
  2. -Project for Kristina’s Ceramics 1 class
  3. -Desire to fix my own problems, was not drinking enough water so making a special vessel could solve that
  4. -This is an individual problem that I figured others related to in a variety of ways,

 

  1. The experience of using the bottles
    1. HOLDING IT–DISCUSS HANDLE DESIGN THEORY (CERTAIN HANDLE DESIGNS MAKE ONE MORE OR LESS AWARE OF THE OBJECT THEY ARE HOLDING)
    2. THE BOTTLES ARE COMFORTABLE, BUT LEAVE YOU AWARE YOU ARE HOLDING THEM
    3. THE UNIQUE HAND-MADE DESIGNS, THE RAW FEEL ARE INTRINSIC TO THE BOTTLES REMINDING US OF THE NATURAL PRECIOUSNESS OF WATER. WHEN WE DRINK WATER FROM PLASTIC BOTTLES IT CREATES THIS “CLONE EFFECT”–THE FEELING THAT THE WATER IS ALWAYS REPLACEABLE…WHEREAS THIS IS NOT THE CASE IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD, OR EVEN THIS COUNTRY
    4. WHAT IF THEY BREAK? WELL, THAT’S PART OF THE DESIGN AND EXPERIENCE. THIS EXPERIENCE OF A PLENTIFUL AND SAFE WATER SOURCE COULD STOP AT ANY TIME.

 

  1. Photo litho transfers
    1. Discuss process
    2. Imagery used
    3. Urban geography appreciating the nature around us
  2. SGRAFITTO METHODS (DISCUSS significance of organic designs, patterns, rustic look–what does this imagery call to beyond aesthetics? How does this impact the consumption of water?)

 

Sustainability impact:

  1. DECREASE OF PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE SALES, INCREASE OF REFILLABLE FOUNTAIN USE
  2. IMPORTANCE OF CONTINUING AND SUSTAINING PREVIOUS PROJECTS, PRACTICING INTERGENERATIONAL COMMUNITIES (IN GENERAL OF COURSE, BUT SPECIFICALLY AT OWU)
  3. OBSERVATIONS OF HOW THIS IMPACTED GREEN WEEK TABLING…IT SEEMED LIKE THERE WAS A CONSTANT FLOW OF PEOPLE AT BOTH TABLES, OFTEN TABLES GET IGNORED AT HAMWIL. PEOPLE KNEW THEY WANTED BOTTLES AND I HOPE IT ENCOURAGED SOME TO REALLY READ THE INFO TREEHOUSE WAS PRESENTING
  4. INCENTIVE BASED MODEL: SUPPORT SUSTAINABILITY, SUPPORT ARTISTS, SUPPORT COMMUNITY OF ACTIVISTS, FEEL PRIDE AND CONNECTION WITH OTHERS
