|If you have a plaster mold, you can readily cast clay in it,
because dry plaster absorbs the water out of the soft clay pressed into
it, so the clay will shrink and stiffen. You are limited to forms which
will pull out of the molds, though, and many of my molds have severe undercuts--
places where the casting will hang up. Busting the mold up while it holds
clay would get plaster crumbs into the clay, and then it would never survive
That said, here are a few ceramic pieces.
