Now that the tiles are all done we have been busy with milk pourers, money savers and vases. Spent all day in the workshop today making my mould (3 piece) of the pourer. Long process. Tiring process. Dirty process. I now sit here with burning eyes and nose and a throught that feels like it's on fire- guess i don't take too well to the plaster! It was fun though. A good day. Here's how it went...
This is my pourer/ jug (whatever you want to call it). Foam model. Base for plaster mould.
Building up the clay on the sides for the first half of the mould.
First half plaster poured..
Sara and I- look how tired i am. Gosh.

3D is finally done and it feels gooood! :) We all got given a picture/ word and had to just basically make it in a 3D form looking as close as possible to the original pic. Mine was a geometric tesselation and my picture i got given was as big as my pinkie fingernail. It was a bit difficult to work out how it was constructed and how it really looked seeing as i don't have super zoom eyes. At the end i got told to design a building or a bicycle helmet pased on the dynamics and structure of a tortise shell. This is the final result. It's 50 x 40cm.
