In my small ceramics studio, I use a variety of homemade bisque molds to make some of my ceramic forms. Bisque (also referred to as biscuit) molds are clay forms I fire to about 1915 degrees, or cone 04. I wrote about how I use the bisque molds here. In this post, I’ll explain how I create the molds.
Once the mold is completely dry, it’s fired in the kiln, and then it’s ready to use over and over again to make other forms. And I just may make a new piece using this mold today… Bon ceramique!
