‘Seed Forms’

The ‘Seed Forms’ are cast from adapted versions of the moulds used for the Bioliths. The image below shows the first three stages in making these cast and carved forms.
'Seed Forms’ - Stages in making. From left: - Four slip-cast blanks with their pour holes plugged (as these are fully enclosed forms with no top or bottom); two blanks with plugs ground away and fettled to remove casting seam lines; then on the right, two ‘Seeds’ fired to around 900ºC and marked up with pencil prior to carving.
For more on how I create my works, look out for the ‘Process’ page that I will be adding to the website soon. In the meantime there are a number of posts and videos about my making methods over on my Instagram feed. Click the icon below to visit.
