CASTING A MOLD from DUNCAN SCIOTO MOLD CATALOG
A mold is a hollow plaster form in which articles are reproduced through the use of liquid clay. The plaster walls of the mold absorb water from the clay slip, producing the clay shell, or casting.
A mold can be open-faced (one-piece) or made in sections (multiple-piece) held together with thick rubber bands or straps.
A ceramics mold is plain on the outside. The inside of the mold determines the shape of the casting. It can be compared to a mirror or reverse image, because the raised areas of the casting are hollow in the mold, just as the incised areas are raised.
Every mold has one or more openings, called pour holes, for the slip that will be poured into the molds.
The process of pouring slip into a mold is called casting.
