Press Mould Plates

Alexis Bowman

I never got any extensive training on the wheel; just a short introduction to it during a ceramics elective in art college. Back then it was immediately obvious to me that to get a handle of the skill I would need to be totally dedicated to it. I was already immersed in my painting so I put it aside for another day. I still haven't got the chance to learn how to throw a pot so I like to build things with my hands instead. This week Steve showed me how to make a plate using a press mould.

First we made a wooden stamp using plywood. We cut this one into a figure of eight shape. We pressed the wooden stamp into the clay while it rested on a large flat sponge to take some slack.
