Pottery Meets Experimental Animation in this Spinning Ceramic Phonotrope

zoetrope-2

Created as part of a collaboration between animator Jim Le Fevre (previously) and artists Al Johnstone and Roops from RAMP Ceramics, this whirling clay pot acts like an animated zoetrope when spun at a certain speed. The film was shot by Mike Paterson and Le Fevre discusses the process of building it over on his blog. If you liked this there’s plenty more zoetrope action here. (via Laughing Squid)
