Developing the Idea

This weekend I made a ‘loom’ for accurately placing oxide stained cotton string or tape between the layers of the BCS. The plaster batt sits on the central cross and the nails will be used to tension the ‘string’ as it crosses the sheet drying on the batt. The nails are overlapped and available every 0.5cm. When the sheet is dry the string can be cut and remains completely straight. It fires out, leaving the colour behind. If the application is timed correctly the colour does not leach into the surrounding clay
