Siirretty: MOULD

A BRIDGE BETWEEN INK AND CLAY


Only ink on paper as his guide, a mold-maker harnesses his skills to create a three-dimentional object from strokes and shapes. It’s like a bridge between the designer’s pen, and the potter’s fingers. Like a two dimentional becoming three-dimentional.

The making of a clay mold seems simple In the hands of a form-maker. His eye is precise, his hand steady; for this is his matter, water, plaster and shape. This process is a combination of patience, and chemical reaction that will change a plaster-powder (grinded from french limestone) into a firm object when mixed with water.

After a week of drying, the mold has released its dampness and the tile-maker will take it to his table.
