Cone Nine Design have responded to a request from The National trust of Australia to create a trustworthy version of a vase painted in 1900’s by one of Australia’s famed artists. Cone Nine Design’s studios developed a distinctive set of technology to create and produce a limited edition reproduction of 300 vases. Cone Nine Design’s research and development behind this project brought about a new process that allows the exact transfer of any image onto both unusual and conventional ceramic shapes, entirely suited for reproductions.
Cone Nine Design, by utilising a combination of computer graphic processes and archaeological photography techniques, produced an image map of the vase painting and fitted to a virtual 3D model of the vase. A physical model of the shape a decal pattern was prepared using specific software procedure to eliminate distortions. With further colour improvement, decals were printed and applied to the cast porcelain vases.
