Everything you need to know about Casting and Mould Making,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Slipcasting (Ceramics Handbooks) (Paperback)
This literally is the crash course, bible and written law on the art of slip casting and mould making.
This book can be used by the beginner just starting out, to the pro confirming what they already know or redefining their technique. The language is easy, explanatory, and detailed, taking you right from the beginning of what is needed in terms of tools, to techniques and tips. There's a history of porcelain and bone china inside, as well as a detailed list or all the equipment needed to start up your own workshop. Explanations on how to make slip cast moulds, models etc are also touched upon in detail. It then also lists and shows how to slip cast so even a complete novice could do so. All the techniques are explained and all are accompanied with diagrams and photographs so you can visualise it. Finally at the end there are examples of her work and the work of other prominent ceramic artists in the field, with explanations of course.
This really has everything you want to know about model, mould making and slip casting, and I highly recommend that every ceramic artist should have one in their library.
