Slump molded plates. I have only made these a few times and have had issues with cracking, warping etc...
and yes the picture above is sideways... I rotated it before uploading it but blogger seems to like it this way. I also did a few small slab pieces with some extra clay.
These plates are thicker than the last go around. I only made three of the large plates because if this doesn't solve the issues I am abandoning these slump forms. Part of the problem is that the mold is too shallow, which once fire, makes them a little flatter than I would like and then there is the humping up in the center issue. The square dish above should be fine. My friend Steve made those molds and I haven't had a problem with them. This one has little feet underneath as well. I enjoyed making these but throwing on the wheel goes so much faster!

So along with taking photos, and listing pots on Etsy, that's what I have been up too.
