Hello, so I came across this really cool table. The artist says its made from clay and it inspired me to make my own sculptural table!(image linked below) ... I was wondering if someone with more experience than me can recommend what I use/ how to build the form? I've only used foam and magic clay over but I'm guessing this won't be sturdy enough? I'm also thinking air dry clay as I won't be able to find a kiln big enough! Also does anyone know how I can add a glass table top securely onto my sculpture! https://www.instagram.com/p/CKxdlTjnBBg/?utm_medium=copy_link
Has anyone used a sheet of plastic, that has been vacuum formed to the shape of a plaster mould, as a way of quickly removing clay that has been pressed into it? Im keen to find alternative ways of releasing the clay quickly on my homemade ram press. I live in the UK and sourcing the materials to make an air release mould is very pricey and difficult. If anyone knows whether the idea above would work or has an alternative suggestion, I would really appreciate the help!
Is wood a good material to make molds because i have three that i sometimes use for hexagonal plate forms and would like to use more, if not then what can i put on the wood to keep clay from sticking or something?
