Art in Process: Patricia Aaron and Chandler Romeo

Romeo's other new work is a wall installation. This kiln did a lot of heavy lifting during the process, heating up to 772-degrees as many times as Romeo needed to create more than 300 'tiles.'

The step-by-step slip casting method starts with Romeo pouring liquid clay into molds made by a friend. She settled on four shapes (more on that on the next page) and had four molds made of each. After pulling the clay out of the mold, she trimmed the excess, cut holes in the back for hanging, and let the piece dry. Then they were each fired in the kiln. Round one: done.
