The purpose of the course is to understand the opportunities to model the forms inherent in molding errors. Participants will learn how to prepare a multi-part plaster molding form, which allows them to model the internal and external shapes of the final object.
The workshop begins with a screening of projections, the first part of which consists of the presentation of Zsolt József Simon’s works, allowing us to observe and understand this special molding procedure. The second half of the screening will demonstrate the creation of a specific item from the beginning to the final stages.
Participants will start working on one of Zsolt’s objects, through individual consultation, and later, they will create a different shape, allowing them to learn from each other’s work. Participants will go through the entire process from mixing the plaster, sawing, sanding and assembling the plaster form all the way to the porcelain casting.
