Porcelain Casting

A complex plaster mold composed of six parts, creates the negative boundary box of the form. Liquid porcelain is poured into the gap between the plaster segments, filling up the confined shape. As minutes go by, the plaster surface absorbs the moisture from the porcelain. Upon emptying the liquid content, a dry porcelain shell remains in place defining the shape. The porcelain skin is dried and burned in extremely high temperatures granting the material light conducting qualities.

Implementing 3 dimensional computerized planning and high-end CNC milling constructing the mold to traditional Ceramic craft, created these uniquely accurate shapes. This precision intensifies the illusion caused by the material - texture mismatch.
