These are the results of the week-long casting workshop I did with Peter Bauhuis last month in Munich. It was a really productive workshop with a great group of people – most of whom were German speakers so I really got to practice my German comprehension skills which was quite satisfying but also exhausting. I probably learned more about casting than I really thought I needed to know but most importantly I learned how to make those beautiful pod forms that I am obsessed with.
These pods have been cast in sterling silver and bronze and I love the raw patina that they have straight from the casting medium. I also love the look of the casting ‘trees’ – almost a sculpture in themselves.
