Changing Aspects and Coils
Using the coils that I had built to emerge or run through the solid forms and a block of fired bone china I arranged the coil to rest between the two blocks of bone china, it reminded me of a tool, a chisel that was used to fracture rock in a quarry. Extending this idea I used a couple of older moulds that I had CNC's from digital models to create press moulded stopper ends. These coiled forms added intrigue to the works, they were very difficult to make and I broke many in the process, adding a little bentonite to the extruded coils helped with plasticity and prevent cracking, although the vibrant colours were slightly dulled by the additions of bentonite. I also tried paper too but extruding these was problematic because of tearing.
