Terra Torne for Sale!

Ariane and I created this bowl. This spontaneous idea started when we decided to make a magazine with our masterclas. Two weeks a go we presented our magazine at school. For our magazine we started little collaborations between our classmates. This bowl is now for sale. Contact me or Ariane if you are interested.
Here you can see how Terra Torne looked like before the glaze firing.

Stone quarry in Wallonie

Today I visit with two friends of mine, Karen Meirsman and Annouk Thys,  a stone quarry in Wallonie. It was very beautiful. I had never been to a stone quarry (steengroeve). I will use some of the calcareous sand for one my graduation projects (the sand is the leftover of the calcareous sandstone, common applications are rubble stone, corner, voussoir, window and door sill).

Sneak peek (master thesis)

This sneak peek is without the music and the voice over.
( I have checked that you can only use music (for free)  if it's older than 50 years)
And as you can see this short film does have a lousy flashvideo quality.

Here you can read where my master thesis is about.

Slib casting

I started this week with slipcasting.  Slipcasting is a technique for the mass-production of pottery. A liquid clay body slip is poured into plaster molds and allowed to form a layer, the cast, on the inside cavity of the mould.
I also made a wooden construction to turn my mold. My molds are to big and to heavy to empty by myself. If you pour the liquid clay into the mold, the mould will be even heavier. So with the 'wooden wheels' I just have to turn the mold between to tables, and empty the liquid clay back into a bucket.
