Complex Mould Making with Somchai Charoen

Somchai Charoen is a Thai born ceramic artist based in Sydney who has exhibited both nationally and internationally. Trained in industrial ceramic design, he was a former lecture at Silpakorn University, Thailand. Since migrating to Australia in 2001, he has worked commercially as a mould and model maker as well as establishing his ceramic homewares label Eat Clay.

Somchai has been working with many artists, designers and ceramics companies including Ben Quilty, Hany Armanious, Rod Bamford, Trent Jansen  Mud Australia and Bison Australia. He is a co-founder of Belmore ITCH, a residency for non-ceramic artist to explore and interpret the medium.

Somchai will take participants through the fundamentals of creating a ceramic slip cast mould. These moulds are a simple way to create objects both of simple or complex forms and then reproduce them. Somchai Charoen is constantly looking for new ways of making a mould that pushes the boundaries of and explores the ideas and possibilities of what mould making techniques can be.

He will demonstrate creative slip casting techniques with moulds that can easily be used to create a number of different moulds or connected in different ways to produce different shapes.
