Slip casting the Rats

Slip Casting. One assembled rat and another drying supported in the mould.
I have started slip casting the rats (to be assembled by hand to create variable stances - an animated approach) to develop appropriate surface options for the installations. I hope to do pairs and various groupings exploring different themes. The first set of pairs will be decorated with decals/transfers, and therefore will remain plain (no under glaze colours and or colour glazes will be used) only a transparent glaze - rendering the rats an off white colour (cream).
