I am currently a teaching intern for a class named Accessories for Living. We are doing an amazing collaborative project with the ceramics department and the class is designing items that enhance the coffee experience. We are modeling our objects in Solidworks and then using a FDM 3D Printer to create a positive. Then using that positive model, we are going to create a mold and slip cast the objects in ceramic.
All in all the project is really cool and I love being a teacher, but I wanted to participate and learn slip casting too! So I designed a stacking cream sugar serving set. I am going to slip cast the top and the bottom in ceramic, but I am also going to make a matching bottom piece out of wood, to contrast the materials.
Stay tuned for the process pictures!
