Day 26: Bread vases

Continuing my investigation into bread I created some bread vases. I used tin foil as a base on which to wrap the bread dough. I decided to overlap the dough and keep the seam which seemed a natural method of joining the rolled dough. I always think it is best to let a material go where it wants and take a natural form under guidance. I started sealing the vases with resin and varnish and i will report back in the future.

I enjoy waiting to see how the heat and the baking process affects the dough. I’m learning what is possible and how to solve issues as I go along. The imperfections, curves and leans in the vases are something I am excited about.

The stage of creating the foil base is essential to the final form.
