In the Making: Spirit Cup!

May 31, 2013

 

Sometimes products are planned and sometimes they just jump from the ether. This cup is one of those that sprung from the muse. 

 

 

As I built the model for the new (and soon to be available!) Terrestrial Planter, I had some plaster left over. If you have ever worked with plaster, you know- time is of the essence! Right quick, I whipped up a ball of plaster into a cup like amoeba mass. Once the plaster was set enough, I went at it with a sureform. Let me tell you- I love this. Not knowing what will come, taking away and revealing a new form. It is an experience that is very alive. I am awake- not like any other time.

 

Uh oh... toooo much plaster! 

...

 

Model is ready! Making the mold.

...

 

Cast decorated and ready for bisque firing! 

---


Waxing bottoms! Ready for glaze.

...

 

Dipped!

...


What came about? Well, this lovely object- container, cup, planter, holder of tools.  It cradles your hand. Sitting proud in rare form. 

I hope you love this one. You can acquire one yourself in white, mint, or a custom color (send me a note) right here> Spirit Cup

 

Cheers, 

Jenn
