‘Yoni’ Casting

YONI CASTING

Yoni (योनि) is the Sanskrit word for the vagina.

It is the divine passage, womb or sacred temple. The word covers a range of meanings, including: place of birth, source, origin, spring, fountain, place of rest, repository, receptacle, seat, abodehome, lair, neststable.

Donna Norton does vaginal casting as an art form, she moulds and sells the casts, to which you may decorate yourself or have cut into a specific shape.

She explains her interest of Yoni casting;

The female form has always been a subject for artists who are fascinated with the curves, folds and beauty of a woman’s body.
I started incorporating the Yoni into my artwork about 10 years ago as I explored body casting techniques and found that I could create the artwork that I wanted to by using plaster moulds, alginate and clay. My work is inspired by nature in all its forms so I love being able to combine the human form with the natural textures of leaves, ammonites, stones and tree barks.
