A breakthrough casting for me in so many ways, “Magnolia Blossom” was an ambitious departure from the simpler, open face molds I had been practicing. This intricate blossom was my second attempt at the form, cast within a closed plaster mold, into which I drip melted clear crystal. Modeled in wax using a real magnolia blossom, layers of translucent white petals fall open, revealing a complex seedpod. With this, my first successful 3D casting, I began to understand the play of light through translucent shapes and how to better manipulate negative spaces.
