' DRIP II '
In order to create repeating products in the metal casting process, normally we make moulds.
Drip II is an experiment on ‘No mould mould’. I dripped fruits, vegetables, balloons, plastic bottles into molten wax. The final pieces of work are one of a kind, with natural texture, traces of gravity, and what remains from the casting process.
