About

200 Bowls is a project to explore process through clay. I have been working on a ceramic technique called underglaze transfers in which I paint a pattern and then slip on the plaster mold, then cast a form. Once the form is ready to be removed from the mold, the images/designs painted on the mold transfer to the cast form. With each form made more information will be learned about the forms, what they can handle (as far as layering and carving) , and how many layers is the right amount. I love working in this process and it has been super fun to explore! I hope you can help me on this journey and gain one of my treasures in return. 

If this project is fully funded, it would  help me fund my ceramic studio with the materials needed to make all these unique bowls just for you!!! The items needed are 10 plaster molds (to make more than 4 pieces every 2 days), casting slip, carving tools, underglaze, and all glazes needed to complete all the bowls. I will be able to focus on creating 200 unique patterns, so that all of these bowls can be limited additions of one! 

 *If you are a backer that has a set, please know that the bowls will be similar to each other but not exactly the same, but they will all be fantastic!!

Please help me make this a success!!! 

Risks and challenges

The challenges for this project will be temperature and moisture here in Philadelphia. If it rains a ton or consistently, then while the pieces in the molds are drying they will take longer to set, which will push back time of completion. If it is really dry, then I will be able to make multiples, but i will have to watch how dry the pieces get before doing finishing trimmings.
Other challenges include the time restraint that I have put on myself. I work full time and then on other artwork, so all of these pieces will be produced in my limited spare time. I am definitely up for the challenge, but it will be a tough one.
