Moving forward this next series of tiles show a variable mold with several material explorations. The most obvious was the use of a patterned fabric to test the extent the plaster would hold color and how the form would react to the fabric.
Another material exploration was the use of rope in various ways. First by testing how the mold reacts to placing rope under the fabric. By doing that it allowed to gain some control of where there would be creases from the fabric as well as smoothing the wrinkles from the fabric slightly. Other strategies used with the rope were to test what imprints of rope and rope bits would look like. And last by inserting rope directly into the plaster it creates and interesting effect with how the rope swirls in and out of the plaster, being visible at some points and not at others.
