Some molding of small decorative attachments to pots was done in the  
15th century.  However, it wasn't slip casting, it was putting clay  
in a mold to shape it, then it was attached to the pot. I know of no  
documentation that says slip casting is period. However, If you are  
decorating your pottery pieces in a particular style (majoilica,  
etc), you can enter the decoration and not the pot itself.
