technical tuesday: Slip Displacement

Loved this simple but super helpful trick that master plaster mold maker and bone china queen Noriko Masuda posted on her Instagram feed yesturday. She ran out of casting slip part way through the cast so added the mug to displace the liquid. Seems so obvious but in my years slip casting I didn’t think of it!
