Thinking Positive: Molding and Casting the Sculptural Form
Hae Won Sohn
The workshop focuses on reverse thinking between the cast form and the mold. While learning the basics of plaster mold-making and slip-casting, students are introduced to the versatility of molds by exploring the interplay of the negative and positive forms created in the casting process. Students are encouraged to explore molds beyond their conventional use as a way to produce multiples and discover the possibilities of mold-making as a generative tool for creating new forms. With access to the kilns and ceramic and sculpture studios, students are able to create unique mixed-media and ceramic sculptures.
