Experiments in the Ceramics Studio

Clare Thornton 7 years ago

I’ve just begun slip casting in bone china. These are the first casts using old jelly moulds. One has had its first firing the other slow-drying.


There are curves and pleats apparent here. If you've had a chance to check out images in my 'recent works' album you’ll have gathered by now these shapes and forms appeal. 


I’m curious about 'fixing' something that usually wobbles or trembles. Teetering on the edge of collapse. 


In the next batch of casts I want to expose the pieces to risk in the kiln as I'm very interested in droop and bend....
