This was fun. She needed the cast for a college exhibition.
We decided that we needed a pregnancy cast to help promote our store stock. What better way than to have a life size, striking pregnancy cast ! This posed an interesting problem..... How does one approach someone, saying " May I please cast your belly to display in shops?"..... that's just very awkward!! Well, we did as the uncomfortable question. a few gave strange looks, but one very brave lady, kindly agreed. To put her at [...]
As we all know from high school, energy can only be converted from one form to another. Some of these forms are useful others are not. It is up to us humans to find ways to convert the energy into a useful form. If we apply the same logic to value we can find the same wisdom. Value in business is a lucrative substance that is difference defined by each person. In the business world the [...]
Craft is a starting place, a set of possibilities. It avoids absolutes, certainties, over-robust definitions, solace. It offers places, interstices, where objects and people meet. It is unstable, contingent. It is about experience. It is about desire. However it turns out, it is beautiful. Practice builds experience.

We decided on a pose, that involved her hair and one hand over her left breast, and her arm partially covering the right breast.Her other arm would be slightly open on her tummy. This was to be from over the mouth to just below the [...]
I am posting this mini blog to show the incredible detail that is captured by our products. At a barbecue, recently, we decided to test some of the materials, and had an impromptu casting of "N's" face and hand. She really wanted to see the rings on her finger, and if they would come out, disolve, or have to be removed from her finger!!! As it turned out, she didn't have to remove them at all. [...]
I approached a friend to model for a cast........ I think I was more nervous than she was, so I checked with her continuously to see if she would "chicken out", but no ! I was not getting out of it. When my model arrived (early), we spoke about a few possible poses and decided on one. So, what we decided was to mould half her face, chest and tummy, with her arms more or less [...]
