Chiselling through excess plaster

Due to the buoyancy of the foam used for the formwork in the plaster the “lightwell” section had floated within the cast before setting. I had to use measurements from the computer model to make an educated guess about where the void lay before using a chisel to cut through the excess plaster to get to it.

Plaster Casting Day

Turning Ali’s kitchen into a plaster casting workshop to make a concept model for the atmospheres I wanted to create for promenade. There were around 6 separate casts, each about 6-10 litres and it took 2 days to complete entirely. Inside the formwork was made of different types of foam and cast within a 15mm Contiboard frame.
