In The Studio

I am getting so close to actually producing the final pieces for my tableware set.  This week I was trying out my molds and casting some test plates and bowls.  I will be firing them over the weekend.  I can't wait to see how they turn out!  I have also prepared 9 different colorant and slip mixtures to find the perfect grey colored porcelain.  My previous trial from a few weeks ago resulted in a light blue clay instead of grey, hopefully these new tests will lead to better results.

I have been finishing making my larger molds for the platters and serving bowls.  I need to make a mold for the large serving bowl and then I will be done with the plaster work!

These are pictures of some of the tools I use everyday.  I love how tools themselves can form really beautiful compositions.
