Cast

 

As part of an exploration into the ordinary, this project looks at using a simple garbage bag as the sleeve for a slip cast. By heating the plastic bag with a heat gun, organic patterns are created in-order to achieve surface texture, that is then transferred onto the plaster cast. 

When slip-casting, creating complex forms are achieved with the use of additional parts of a cast, to cater for undercuts. However when using a soft material such as a plastic bag, the plastic can simply be pulled away from folds and complex undercuts. 

These experiments also included the use of aluminium foil using the same process, which achieved incredible detail in folds and geometric patterns.
