I made an 8 piece plaster mold of an old tire I found in my back yard. A Winston Californian 1 20570R14. Seemed like the perfect object at the time to represent a memory.
In the lower right of the picture is a maquette of the final sculpture.
A tire swing leaning against a wall, discarded, oozing a viscous substance from its central core.
The slip I use is the consistency of a "milkshake".
Added an extra buttress in the middle of each sidewall section for added support.
Add more as I make it.
Thanks for visiting,
