In The Studio

I have spent the past week making molds for my new tableware line.  I like taking the time to make my molds pristine.  It's important to me to apply the clean and simple aesthetic of my finished work to the whole creation process.  I like treating the molds as mini sculptures in their own right.

In The Studio

This week I have been mixing up batches of porcelain Limoges Slip. I've been making dozens of mini test bowls to find the perfect white, grey and black colored clay bodies. Once I decide on the correct percentages I'll be moving on to testing a bunch of different glazes.

In The Studio

Plaster, plaster, and some more plaster!!! 

I have been carving away at the prototypes for my new tableware line.  My hands are dry and cracking, my nails are worn down, but I think it is worth it.  I just finished making the plaster models of my dinner plate and small plate.  They both have organic pebble like shapes with subtle curves.  It's exciting to see my ideas come to life!
