"Lopster Trap Picture Frame"
The social distancing has not been so bad for me personally. I get to spend more time in my workshop, which is attached to my living space.
I have been working on the concept of a memorial type picture frame for a while now. I had worked out a size fore the wharf and frame and how to glue them together. I used a silicone mold I had on hand for casting the trap ( pushing in clay to make the shape rather than using casting slip ).
I decided to make a 5 piece mold for the lobster trap. It has worked out well and I made a few reproductions.
I am happy with the results but i don't like the loss of detail when I apply the glaze colours. I think I will fire a few and try using artist paints for the finish.
I'll post pictures when I get them finished.
