Casting and slumping the placenta.
Carrying on with the 'placenta' piece. The idea is to cast two, but both slightly different. Will be using a lustre on-glaze to draw thin 'veins' over the thicker 'veins' that are part of the form itself. I am still making a 'feature' out of the pouring holes in my work to give the impression of a vessel or a cave. I like to work with the casts that dont come out as planned - if they break or slump over. The last two images show the piece that has been manipulated and worked into by engraving the back with a 1mm drill bit, which will be painted with a lustre in the thin grooves.
