Water Vessel

Fall 2016

Water takes on the form of whatever contains it. This project explored the different ways people share, store, and consume water. The vessel is a mode of transportation for the liquid. It needs to be simply filled and emptied of its contents. The shape informs the user of its primary affordances and the interaction model.


I explore a form and the interaction with it by producing quick physical models. Drawings frame the concept, and a quick foam model helps guide the direction. More vessels can be found on my Explore page.


I make quick models to get a better idea of the proportions and how the user interacts with the shape.


My goal for this project was to produce a highly crafted model with great attention to detail and finish, culminating in a final vessel with an intuitive interaction and functional pour.
