Casting Class

Last weekend seven artists from around Texas came together at Wired Designs Studio for a 2 day casting workshop. They rolled up there sleves and got a little dirty working with clay, alginate, wax and plaster making molds to cast glass. I had a great time working with this group of ladies. We may have been working with the same materials yet everyone had such differnt results. Here are their peices just coming out of the kiln.

Some choose to work in the positive creating three dementional pieces like this releif Louise created. It's still covered in paster and I already think it is beautiful evoking the feel of an ancient roman remain. Others used the molds they created to cast negative images in the glass, like this ghostly image Jan created.
