Ceramicist Monika Patuszynska uses the slip casting method in a nonconventional way. It is almost impossible to create a mold that does not create parting lines on the clay positive. Most artists spend tons of time scraping and sanding them down. Monika does just the opposite. She goes as far as to destroy her mold to create these lines, smashing them into various fragments to then piece them back together with jagged edges that resemble the profiles of rocks jutting out from the sea or mineral formations from desert lands.
I think current senior Alana Burfield could find a lot of inspiration from this nationally known artist.
