121. What is molding?

With the development of thechnology. There are appeared many new thecgnologies. For example molding.

Molding in architecture, furniture, and decorative objects, a surface or group of surfaces of projecting or receding contours. A plastic molding may serve as a defining element, terminating a unit or an entire compositionor establishing a boundary or transition between portions of a design.

One of the primary considerations in the product design of custom molds is the type of shadow it will cast. The shape of a molding is termed its profile or section. Moldings formed an important part of most past styles; however, their place was taken by flat ceramic enrichments in color.

In the late Gothic of France and Germany there were ingenious combinations of differing elements to produce broken, merging, and interpenetrating moldings. In developed Gothic a rich assortment of naturalistic forms appeared, e.g., flowers and intertwining vines. The Renaissance return to purely Roman forms was followed in the baroque by heavier, projecting moldings, which cast dramatic shadows. Later a wide variety of styles was employed, but since the 19th cent., decorative molding has been little used in modern architecture.
