casting with evelyn dunstan - part 1 / by Hannah Gason

I recently took part in an intensive casting course with Evelyn Dunstan at the ANU School of Art Glass Workshop.  It was an excellent course! The course focused on advanced wax forming techniques, and used commercial mould materials to achieve highly-detailed casts. Evelyn was very generous with her extensive knowledge, ideas, and tips.  I particularly enjoyed learning how to build up an object using wax, and the challenge of making intricate and complex structures. Below are pictures of the first piece I made during the course, at various stages of completion. Another piece is in progress!
