Limited Edition Blue and White Christmas Ornament
This is one in an edition of 100 ornaments that are signed and numbered by me. They were cast in three colors of slip with roughly 1/3 being green, 1/3 red, and 1/3 light blue. Once cast, they were inlaid with an additional color to bring out the design. You'll receive a random number blue ornament out of the batch
These ornaments are part of my journey in learning mold making and slip casting. I was practicing with large scale (for me at least) production with this project. After making the original object, I made a plaster mold and then a silicone mold in order to make more plaster molds. It might sound confusing, but it's really just a way to be able to make a lot of ornaments in a short amount of time, but it's a tricky skill to learn.
I also just love Christmas time and decorating a Christmas tree holds a special place in my heart.
