I am working on a project where I need to be able to mold the interior walls of a part. Similar to the double wall mug shown in the attached picture. I know this isn't recommended for slipcasting, but I can't come up with a better way to make it. I have only been able to find a few examples of this type of mold and I am trying to see if anyone has any guidelines or recommendations.

Looking for some suggestions for the quickest/easiest way to make slabs for the jigger.

In other words, why do you make clay objects? Is it for fame or fortune, love or need, or even knowledge and curiosity? Why do you do what you do in Ceramics? This has never been a question that I had thought very much of, as from the very beginning for some reason or other it just seemed natural, not a question of why, but why not. I could no longer be without clay once experiencing it as I could do without good food, nice fabric, a loving wife, or children or even breathin
