Juggling cracked eggs

September 25, 2017

Today was spent slip casting with porcelain slip/. One model in particular was very thin, left for less than 35 seconds in the mould. The way the slip  does (and does not) peal away from the mould is particularly interesting. That is part of the interest of slip casting. The way each pour is impacted by the slip condition, the particular mould and the air temperature (and humidity). But also there is the challenge of  physically handling the cast face, deciding when/if/how to clean it up. I seem to enjoy trying to get the thinnest possible face, but would also like to better understand the mould making process, and improving the detail within the face itself. Note to self, I need to photograph both the college work AND the stuff I am doing at home.
