Interesting slip cast of existing forms

In reference to the discussion on making a slip casting mold from an existing object, such as a bottle, I think these artists have demonstrated how such a process can be interesting and quite exciting. I would see the works here as interpretations of the original form that I think offer a different perspective on its shape and purpose.

Matthew Sanna uses a standard 8 ounce Coca Cola bottle for two works. In the one shown here he distorts the molded bottle while glazing it in a light green similar to the color of the original glass.

Alyssa Ettinger slip molds mason jars and uses the porcelain product as a luminary. I think this technique highlights the details of the mason jar
that are typically less noticeable in its original clear glass.
