      Based in Devonport, New Zealand, Reforge was originally formed to explore recycled drinking bottles as a 3D printing material. The concept was to build local digital manufacturing in a environmentally sustainable way with the support of Government and Universities. The support was there and we printed hundreds of objects in recycled plastic. But while the concept was valid, funding was elusive and like many people who get involved in 3D printing, we were getting frustrated with the limitations of plastics.  We started looking at more sustainable materials and found ceramics held real promise.  We decided to move away from plastics, fully self fund our project and embrace clay as our medium for art and products.  We created an art studio at our bach in the mahurangi and went into production.  During this time we discovered a ready market for our print art and decided it was time to combine our 3d printed ceramics into this online store.
