This weekend has been pretty productive – steady, but promising! I’m making a new trug model and mould and I had forgotten just how challenging it can all be – there’s so much to get your head around! Luckily, I have a wonderful friend over at Kiss Me Kate Ceramics who was on the end of the phone when I needed some brilliant and inspiring technical advice!
As well as watching me puzzle over my trug model measurements, this weekend my little studio saw its first ever casting sesh. Sadly though, I didn’t quite leave the slip in the mould to cast for long enough and I decided to destroy the piece once it had dried as it was too thin. It’s ok though, I loved getting my hands dirty again and I can reuse the slip at a later date… waste not, want not!
