Make Ceramic Platters of Any Shape and Size With an Easy to Make Mold
Learning how to make a platter is an important skill for a potter. Platters are also a ton of fun because of the huge flat surface area that you can decorate! There are a lot of different ways of making ceramic plates, from wheel throwing to slab building.
In today’s video clip, an excerpt from Hybrid Pottery: Throwing, Altering, & Assembling, Marty Fielding demonstrates how to make a platter using a cheap and simple-to-make mold. I love this technique because it allows you to come up with just about any shape of ceramic platter you can think of. Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
