– explorations in slip casting and studio systems
Ceramics and wheel throwing are recent but extreme fascinations! I could have spent four years just studying glazes, clay bodies, and the history of formal archetypes… Alas, I am thrilled to be able to explore form and decoration in a really direct and fulfilling way, but through my relation to the making of the objects but also through their lives with other users.
Assisting in Carol Koffel's ceramic studio., I have been making some basic plaster mold for slip casting. My original goal to re-create some of my favorite cups I have thrown has revealed to me the many ways in which casting and throwing are not the same!
Stay tuned for results of lots of glaze tests… and more wheelthrowing.-
