It took a drill bit, some nails, pliers, and a hardcore game of operation to finally get this baby out. I was really missing Stefan (@rcaceramicsandglass people know what I'm talking about! 😭) but then @akira_towel came to my rescue and I saved my tears for another day 😂
Working on my slip casting project and I’m finding it kinda hard. It was hard for me to wrap my mind around casting the different parts of the object. I think next time I will try a simpler object but I will show you all the results from this one soon.
This is the first large panel made with added glass (2'x2' / 60x60). Fired to stoneware it was relatively successful and the self made glazes all appeared as anticipated (a fairly rare occurrence in those earlier days!).
@lucypurple is making another bulk of these amazinnggg handmade ceramic jars! 😻👏🏼 Large £15, Medium £12 & Small £6 ☺️ ..she also has a new larger jar which will be £20 (not shown in the photo) follow her page to keep up with the progress & they'll be ready to buy in a few weeks! 💜 they make a gorgeous gift!! @lucypurple @lucypurple
🎶Plaster in the sun🎶
Here, a milk bottle mold sits quietly in the evening sun. I started numbered molds after going through the first set of molds in undergrad. After a hundred or so casts, the Darvan in the casting slip will absorb into the plaster and make it harder and harder for water to be absorbed into the mold. Darvan is a pretty neat material. A polymer that makes - for lack of better terms - water wetter. A tiny amount goes an incredibly long way, sometimes all you need is a couple drops. ~
A super special mold that I have been wanting to make for a while. This piece is going to be one of my #ceremonial#pendants for my #religion . I had planned on making this in grad school, using #slipcasting (#ceramic ) but since I haven’t found the right fit yet I’m going to be doing this in #resin instead. I don’t have any #plaster#bandages so I added some #cheesecloth in the resin layers to add strength and stability to the mold. I still have clear resin and I just got some white, so I should be finishing my first Cast in a couple of days. Super excited!!! #AcyrlicResin#SiliconMold#Silicon
Just a few of our favorite things ✨
