EMPTY BOWLS project
A Good Kind of Mold
Here at PWHS, we have been fortunate work with David Toan, who has established a partnership with the LaGrange Business Bureau to host an event second to none. Last April, Terra Incognito Studios in LaGrange with the LBB, organized the local restaurants to give away food to the bearers of bowls, and brokered the sale of over 600 bowls. The event was amazing and the profits benefitted two local soup kitchens that feed the local hungry.
Complete Ceramic Idea Sheet.
Begin with a ball of clay and shape into a flatten piece.
Use the slab roller to roll out a slab 1/2” thick.
Pick up the slab of clay from the edge farthest from you and turn 90 degrees.
Adjust the slab roller; roll out a slab no thinner than 3/8” thick.
Take the slab to your table and mold over the plaster mold.
Let the slabs dry to a slightly leather hard state or use a hair dryer to speed up the drying.
Use a tool to remove the edges around the base of the mold.
Gently remove the leather hard slab from the mold.
Use slip and your finger to repair any blemishes.
Alter the rim or add other features such as feet and handles.
Add any other decorating you may wish.
Once decoration has been finished, add signature and let dry to bone dry.
