How to Handbuild a Stacked Dish Using Bisque Hump Molds

radaschstackedbowl_620Combining multiple bisque molds to create stacked pots is a really fun way to explore form. A bonus is that you can stack the molds themselves before you even start on a piece to test out which forms work and which don’t. And once you have a good collection of molds in your arsenal, the possibilities for stacked combinations are practically limitless.

Kari Radasch loves this way of working because it keeps her from getting bored in the studio, and it is a relatively quick way to work (good for a busy mom of two young children). In today’s post, an excerpt from her brand new video Low-Tech Clay: High End Results, Kari demonstrates one of her stacked dishes.
