Plaster has a unique relationship with slip.

The former sucks the moisture from the latter,
making the foundation for porcelain. Sadly
(or as it was meant to be), there was an accident.
Hydraulic pressure was too great, the box split
at the corners and warm wet plaster was spilt.

I scooped it into a disc and carved this face so's
not to waste the material. It set up quick and I
carried it home, planted our man in the garden.
