Industry employs slip casting for the manufacture of domestic objects, but ceramic artists also use the process to create large-scale installations and ease the burden of production work. In this class, students will make multi-piece plaster molds and then use them to make slip-cast items of their own (sculptural or functional). This process is labor-intensive, so be ready to work! We will also be looking at artists who use slip-casting to make “multiples” of their work.
