A second original.

Finally got the chance to use my mould after a week of it drying. We used slip clay that is made by the technicians, as this is the easiest and most productive way to create work. The slip is poured into the mould and left for 20 minutes to form a “skin.” Because the mould is so small I let the clay dry soild instead of tipping out excess slip. The mould took an hour to dry. Once set I cut away the joining lines that are left by the mould and used a damp sponge to improve the finish. It will be fired in the next few days.
