This course is a basic intro to mold making class where students will learn how to cast wheel thrown, hand built functional ware and found objects. This process is great for recreating the same thing over and over with molds we cast during class using casting slip. Students will get their hands dirty with an introduction to mixing plaster and learning basic casting of 2 (or more) part molds from found objects. From there, they will apply their new mold-making skills to casting multiples of their own sculpted or thrownforms, employing techniques of clay modeling, carving Styrofoam, and constructing paper models. With these multiples, we will play with assemblage by wet and dry joining techniques followed by firing and glazing. Students will be encouraged to think outside the “functional” box of ceramics, by incorporating other materials and experimenting with process. This is a great class for more experienced students looking to deepen their creative practice. Materials and tools will be provided, students with their own respirators should bring them. Enrollment in this course includes additional access to one monitored Open Studio session per week; either on Thursday afternoons from 3:00pm – 6:00pm, Friday evenings from 5:00pm - 8:00pm, or Sunday evenings from 5:00pm - 8:00pm.
