Learn new slipcasting techniques to create a wide range of beautiful and individualised pieces. In the past, slipcasting was primarily considered an industrial method. Today, however, ceramic artists are adapting its techniques to create a wide range of beautiful and highly individualised pieces. Slip, a water and clay solution, is poured into porous molds. As the mold absorbs water from the slip, a layer of clay forms a cast. The excess slip is removed from the mold and the cast is stiffened, removed, dried, and fired in a kiln. Since the molds can be based on anything from delicate sculpture to found objects, slipcasting frees artists from the constraints of other ceramic techniques while allowing them to create multiples of their works.

Sasha Wardell's Slipcasting is a straightforward, practical guide for those interested in the boundless possibilities of the technique. The book contains more than one hundred color illustrations, diagrams, and slip formulas. An inspiring Individual Approaches chapter discusses the slipcast work of a variety of contemporary ceramicists from around the world.

Sasha Wardell clearly explains and demonstrates the techniques involved and shows you how they can be adapted for the studio workshop. Full of colourful images, this book gives you a thorough grounding in all aspects of mould making and slipcasting. Get inspired by the work of an international group of artists which illustrate the breadth and versatility of the work that can be created. This second edition also contains a revised chapter on individual approaches by well-known contemporary artists.



Award-winning ceramicist Sasha Wardell is a fellow of the Craft Potters Association and the author of Porcelain and Bone China.
