slip-cast in porcelain

I have been working on the wheel for a quite while now since my studio mate let me use her wheel. It's a very therapeutic process and I love it! For upcoming shows I will be showing those that I made in dark colour clay. I hope you'll like it!

At the same time I started working back in porcelain for a commission work. These are prototypes made in slip-casting. Slip-casting is a way to repeat the same shape. We pour liquid clay into a plaster mould and let it absorb some water from the clay. When it builds up enough clay on the wall we pour the excess liquid out. This way we get the shape of the mould, hollow inside. It's so refreshing to go back to another process as well!
