After selecting one out of the three modules to work with, it’s time to get on to the fun part – making the silicone mould! Therefore, this post is dedicated to the technical drawings of my ideal ice tray and the process of making it.
To recap, my key words are fracture, reflect and array.
Technical Drawings for Ideal Ice Tray
I arranged my modules in a circular formation, hence fulfilling the key word ‘array’.
Latex Mould and Plaster of Paris Replicas

I have to thank Zhen Qi and Jocelyn for helping me pour the silicone for my modules because I wasn’t able to make it on Saturday. Thanks so much gals!
Now that I look back at my module, I do agree that the ‘fracture’ element can be more obvious. As for this project, I really enjoy it because I got to experience so many new materials such as clay, latex, plaster and silicone! To be honest, I was quite intimidated by the clay because I’m not good with crafting, let alone sculpting. But the modules turned out to be better than I expected so I guess the skills comes with practice (as always). I’m really happy to see this project from the start to finish, it has been a great ride!
