After a jet lagged sleepless night I was thinking about the site – peat bog – how it was starting to unfold into earth fire and water. Could I mould/cast 3 different materials:-

Earth – raw clay with elements from the site leaves moss grasses

Water – cast glass

Fire – ash glazed saggar fired

I could make a plaster original, cutting the semi dry plaster using a metal tairsgeir like metal tool, that is cast in 3 different moulds (earth, water, fire) that can be stacked together? I would need to adjust for shrinkage of the fired clay.
