Sgraffito in 3D

From October 25 until January 4 the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam is exhibiting its wonderful collection of sgraffito objects from the period 1450-1550.

Sgraffito is an ancient decorative technique in which patterns are scratched into the wet clay. The Dutch plates, bowls and cooking pots are part of the Van Beuningen-De Vriese collection. The artist Joachim Rotteveel has made this archaeological collection accessible in a spectacular way using 3D reconstruction techniques from the worlds of medicine and industry. The exhibition is accessible free of charge to everyone.

The exhibition has been made possible by the Erasmus Medical Centre (Radiology department), TNO Science and Industry (Rapid Manufacturing Demo Centre), the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (AR+RFID Lab) and the Erasmus Foundation.
