Mould making is fundamental to many manufacturing processes, both in small-batch productions and in mass manufacturing. In those processes, the mould is indispensable for bringing the desired object into existence. When the mould has been used to cast however many objects it is put to one side and the focus shifts onto the object it has created.

The project explores ways to answer the question; Is it possible to extend the mould's active life with subtle interventions and by doing so, maintaining its value after the casting process by making it as desirable as the realised object?

This piece is a mould for a bookend. After the desired number of bookends had been cast the mould was painted and glued together. The different colours indicate how the mould came apart to get the object, the bookend, out.
