– Press molded work

The use of plaster press molds has allowed me to think about form beyond the symmetry and altered symmetry of the wheel. One, two and three part molds are made from clay models which are profiled using flat wooden templates. Slabs of clay are pressed onto the plaster molds. These pressed forms are then completed with thrown elements such as feet, collars, lips and raised details. This combination of technique offers many variations and endless possibilities.
