These images show the results of a module in slipcasting a prototype. We used all sorts of soft water proof containers, filled them with plaster and then created the mold from that. My original containers were paper party lolly bags and the refill tube for fabric softener.
The three grey ones are "Lean and Mean" teapots. Additions of handles and lids transform them into teapots.

These pieces were fired in a Raku firing. The teapot was relief printed with copper oxide and then glazed with a clear crackle glaze. The little dishes were printed using a Riso print and then glazed with the same glaze then design scratched through glaze. The design then turned black during reduction in sawdust.
