The staff of the ceramics studio is in the process of reconstructing the entire line of plaster molds for ceramic Soleri bells.

Maintenance manager Randall Schultz teamed up with Ceramics studio manager David Hutchens to accomplish this process.

The first sequence of photos will show pre-casting form construction for one-piece conical plaster molds.

Here we see Randall pouring the plaster mix into one of the forms.

The form is lightly shaken to help bubbles surface before the plaster sets and cures.

We will continue this report on Friday, March 2. 2012.
