Making fine porcelain
Here are some molds draining after being cast yesterday. 5 saucers at a time. The molds are made out of plaster, from my original shapes. After they drain, they are set on wire shelves to harden further until I can remove them from the molds to trim them. It was cold outside, but warm in the studio. Perfect for casting.
This is what the a plate looks like after it comes down from the drying rack, ready to trim. The trimmed clay goes into a bucket for reclaim.
