Create a range of sculptural/functional objects utilizing slip casting and press molding processes. Found manufactured molds, cast plaster slabs, and single part molds will be constructed and collected as a library of plaster parts. Then, you will cut apart, drop, and dissect the parts, creating fragments and sections of the original object. Reimagined and reassembled, these new plaster hybrid molds will yield incredible collaged ceramic forms.
NOTE: This class is two sessions on consecutive Thursdays! Please plan to attend both days:
- Thursday, March 19, 2:15-4:15pm
- Thursday, March 26, 2:15-4:15pm
