How are we going to work:

  • Using a previously chosen symmetric object you will build a plaster mold of a single block. You will split this mold in the middle, obtaining a two-part mold, with the separation lines barely visible
  • You will make a three-part mold from a more complex prototype
  • Learn to make press stamps
  • Build press molds
  • Construct a roller stamp mold
  • You will work with slips: earthenware and porcelain, white and colored slip castings
  • Learn to make interventions in the pieces obtained from the molds: ad ons, perforations, alterations, reserves, etc.

Note that:

  • Previous experience with ceramics is desirable
