Crockery - Mug
Size: 2.16x5.51" / 5.5x14cm (HxW)
A collection of fine bone china tableware slip-cast from plaster models carved by hand, with a glazed interior for functionality and raw exterior reflecting the modest surface texture of the plaster original. The process of slip-casting begins with the creation of a three-dimensional model of the design known as a ‘master’ by a professional model-maker, from which the production mould is cast. Crockery bypasses this process by placing the responsibility of both designer and model-maker in the hands of Max Lamb. Using the tools of a stone mason Lamb chips and carves a solid block of plaster to make a series of tableware, the design of each formed quite simply out of their own making.
