Whether you work in a shared studio, at a community arts center, in a luxurious private studio or in a corner of your basement, chances are that space is at a premium. Today Holly Goring shows us how to make a reclaim slab that doubles as a wedging board, saving space, materials, time and effort. You will need some basic plaster know-how, but luckily Holly has already covered a lot of this in her previous video feature Plaster Mixing 101.
Today’s feature is a lot like making a one-piece plaster mold, except that it’s flipped on its head and the object being cast is actually sunk into the plaster after it has been poured. Genius! — Sherman Hall, Ceramic Arts Daily
