‘The media are not toys… they can be entrusted only to new artists, because they are art forms.’
(McLuhan, 1954)

Blanche Howard

Adventures in Casting

with Juliet Haysom

CMS1 First Year

Blanche was keen to investigate the physical properties and creative potential of fabric formwork. She produced a series of ambitious and distinctive casts defined by fine surface detail, elegant geometric form and successful handling of various combinations of pigmented concrete. Her comprehensive submission featured carefully composed-photography which captured the subtle haptic qualities of her work. An exceptional project.

Course Description
Adventures in Casting
with Juliet Haysom

This course explores the physical transformation of certain materials over time and the reciprocal relationship between mould and cast form. Working with pigments, aggregates and additives, creating and testing processes such as the jetwash, etch, cut, and polish, students will develop a series of appropriate methods for translating void into form.
