The omnijug was a self initiated project to explore the semiotics around food and drink and sharing. The angular form of the jug is an antiprism or irregular octahedral shape which creates three spouts and three ways to hold the jug, such that it can be used to pour drinks for others as well as yourself. The concept was based on three-handled, three-spout jugs found in Roman and Medieval times.
The initial shape was developed using 3D parametric modelling and a prototype was produced using a Z-corp powder-resin 3D printer. This initial prototype is the positive model for the creation of a plaster mould which could be used as part of a slip casting process to create further production pieces.
