Molds are a simple way to create simple or complex forms and then reproduce them with little effort. When you do this, the individual forms lose their preciousness, which allows you the freedom to creatively experiment.

With the little studio time that I get, I definitely fall into the habit of letting pots become too precious and sticking to what's "safe." If you do too, today's video may be just what you need. In this excerpt from Guy Michael Davis's Fundamentals of Mold Making & Slip Casting, Mike demonstrates his simple and easy method for making cottle boards for making molds. – Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor


This video was excerpted from Fundamentals of Mold Making & Slip Casting, with Guy Michael Davis, which is available in the Ceramic Arts Network Shop.
