The designs are based on found forms that are molded and constructed in porcelain, mimicking the history of decorative arts and design. Their process addresses the conceptualization, discovery, and acquisition of form, to make content-loaded sculptures that reference design and are held together by craft. They incorporate an interdisciplinary approach to our work, striving to make influential historic objects relevant to today. 

The artists use three-dimensional scanning processes to capture historic busts and sculptures around the country for retranslation.

Using photogrammetry, the art and science of making and recording measurements from photographs, they are able to fully document and bring iconic sculptures into a digital environment. The artists then have the ability to print, scale, and model their own versions in porcelain. Similar to how museums allow artists to sketch and paint on site, they are creating their own copies of the original, while letting the photographic process inform the work.
