Functional ceramics: Mold Making and Slip Casting for Beginners

First, learn how to make a simple two-part mold, and cast it in porcelain slip.  Then, learn how to translate plastic, paper, metal and/or plaster into a more complex mold, focusing on usable kitchenware like bowls, cups and vessels.  You can also use plaster, balloons, even latex gloves to create interesting forms with smooth, clean surfaces.  Learn the basics - watch out or you'll get hooked!
