Slip casting, or slipcasting, is a ceramic forming technique for pottery and other ceramics, especially for shapes not easily made on a wheel. In this method, a liquid clay body slip (usually mixed in a blubber) is poured into plaster moulds and allowed to form a layer, the cast, on the inside walls of the mould. The process usually takes at least 24 hours per piece. It gives very precise and consistent shapes, and is now the most common technique used for commercial mass-produced pottery, although it began as a technique for fine pottery such as European porcelain in the 1750s,and Chinese Jingdezehen porcelain considerably earlier.
What a great piece to use for a big flower arrangement or holding utensils on your kitchen counter. Stunning for your collection of advertising wares or dairy slab!
