IT'S ALIVE! IT'S ALIVE... after I killed it once, maybe twice.
It lives! It only took forever. After a couple failed attempts at making my rather large, heavy and monstrous upside down positive I now have my rather large, heavy, cellulose fiber and plaster mold from which it shall give birth to more vase babies.
This vessel mold shall be the starting point from which I shall further the design of my cloud vessels from my previous academic year. These pieces shall be slip cast in cone 7-10 porcelain. I'm expecting some slumping with the high firing temperature and a fairly translucent porcelain as a result. The slumping I'm hoping will add a soften, more gestural feel to my pieces making them look a bit more round and natural.
