Uli helped me vac form my new mould, and I discussed my project with him. I told him I was using 'noble' materials (dense, warm materials like wood, ceramic, brass, steel) and he had some good ideas about uniting the tools as a family.
I could use the materials to unite the family. Why not use ceramic for the handles/blades etc as well as the bowl. Or if I have a silicone lid, it would make sense to have a silicone spatula. Because bakers often keep multiple starters, maybe I need to make the sourdough starter container stackable. This would mean the lid would have to be a harder material like ceramic, wood, glass. The lid could have a slight groove that the base of the next container fits into. How would the user remove the lid?
Uli talked about a big brother container for mixing the bread, or one for proofing. The containers could all use the same basic profile, i.e. extend the side profile in one direction to make a bigger container with the same aesthetic. This would unite them as a family through their form. I could use imagery in my presentation to The same form could also be incorporated into the other tools. maybe the side profile of the dough scraper matches that of the starter container.
