What Are You Doing This Year

January 17, 2018

Some time in December each year, I decide that I should learn something new about my craft by taking a class or workshop.  I also like doing things that are out of my normal comfort zone.  This year, I decided to take a slip casting class.  I did this after picking up a vessel that another potter made and being delighted it the shape and feel of it.  It was slip cast.

 

I'm just finishing the three classes of a 10 week quarter.  It was a very busy 9 hours.  We started the class by making a prototype model of what we wanted to make.  We then transferred this model to a block on potter's plaster by carving and smoothing out the form.

 

Today we took this form and created a mold of it.  The process is shown in the following video.  We begin slip casting on Thursday.
