How to Capture the Beauty of Nature in Your Pottery with Homemade Texture Molds

I adore flowers and love gardening so Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s no surprise then that flowers make an appearance in my work from time to time (well, most of the time). David Scott Smith is also a fan of flowers. You might say it’s in his blood – his grandfather owned a flower shop and then, after “retirement” a horticulture instructor. In today’s post, David explains how he makes bisque texture molds with wildflowers. As artists, we are constantly reflecting on the motivations behind our ceramics.

I have a love for flowers, especially wildflowers, that I can trace back to when I was a young boy. Wildflowers are usually as delicate as they are beautiful. Capturing Delicate Textures When I first started exploring mold-making in the early ’90s, I only worked with plaster. We are all familiar with sprig molds, or simple stamps and rollers made with clay. Subscribe today! Making the Mold. What If? Explorations with Texture and Soft Slabs.

My reference to rural American architecture and antique rural implements places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time. The colors used refer to milk painted surfaces, layered and stained by generations of use and the elements and steel tacks are placed in the clay surface to give a direct connection to ideas of construction and joinery. 2012 Potters Council - General Collection > NEW Products > Potters Council Online Store.

By applying multiple layers of enamel I seek to enhance the expression not in order solely to create something different but to deepen form. The layers of colour are built up intensively until such a moment: the moon gleaming on water – soft lifting serene, subdued, yet strong, intimate enough to have inherited a life as well as a form. Form and surface melt together – no longer me, but storyteller.
