How to Make a Bisque Hump Mold with a Bucket

radaschbucket_620

Molds are one of my favorite tools in my studio. I love how quickly you can produce objects. Since graduating from the Ohio State University in the spring of 2014, I’ve been trying to avoid making plaster molds in my basement studio. Carving out a dedicated plaster space isn’t ideal when my studio space is already tight. Thanks to Kari Radasch, I’ll be able to make new bisque molds quickly, effectively, and most importantly, without any plaster.

In today’s video, an excerpt from her video Low-Tech Clay – High-End Results, Kari demonstrates a really simple and interesting technique for creating a soft-curved hump mold by slumping clay into a bucket. This clip got me ready to make some new bisque molds! I can’t wait to try this out! – Ash Neukamm, guest editor
