Mixing very small quantities of slip, oxide, glaze etc. for decorating and leaving them in small dish without labelling - sure I'll remember what they are. 2/3 days later looking quizzically at the same mixture wondering exactly what it was!

Looks like a clever prototype to me. I don't think 'real' potters should feel threatened by all these technological advances, any more than by cheap mass-produced imports. So, if they already threaten your livelihood ... then do be scared! I can imagine episodes of the Antiques Roadshow (UK) in the future, where the 'experts' are trying to decide if a piece of ceramics is genuine or fake! There's always going to be a place for the genuine - keep on potting!!

If you just want to look at them, then fine. For any practical use, they'd be pretty fragile - almost certainly break if dropped on a hard surface, easily chipped if knocked with something hard.

Clay, water, bowl, chamois.
