Slip Casting Mold & Copyrights

Recommended Posts

My question is how does copyright impact slip casting?

 

My grandmother past a way not to long ago and I now have many of her slip casting molds. Some of these molds have the manufacture name and copyright logo etc. I also know that these can also be purchased online. How does this process work? Once you own the mold you can do as you wish with it? Create plates, cups, bowels etc and then sell them? or is the process of selling them not allowed with the copyright? I'm a little confused on how this might impact me as an artist or a future business with selling online slip-cast items.

 

Thanks for any help.

I would think you can use the moulds to cast items with no problem, but if you used the moulds to make and sell more moulds you would be in trouble.

You can cast and sell the forms without issue.Make 10,ooo and sell them-no issues

Making molds and selling them exactly like those is a no -no.

My guess is most of the mold companies are long gone  by now really.

It can more problematic if you find something you like and then make a mold of it. If it's is an item with a distinctive shape, it's probably protected.

I don't know Carl, ceramic bowels could be a statement of sorts. Normally, we eat food off of a ceramic ware, and it eventually ends up in our bowels. But if we eat food of a ceramic bowel, it's like reversing the order man..... *Does the mind blown gesture*

 

It could even be a new "trend"; see other topic.
