Casting is an art technique that is essential to understanding, appreciating and creating sculptural works (plus, it’s really fun and totally messy). This week 2D Studio students created a clay “waste mold” (that means the mold only gets used one time) to cast weeds collected from our campus. One of the interesting things about casting is you have an opportunity to make something lasting out of something that is often short lived. Who knew weeds were this beautiful?!
