Pounce or Push Plate Forms
Basically I cut a slab of clay two inches larger than the exterior dimensions of the form. I place the clay slab on a thick piece of foam and place the wood form in the center of the clay. Grasping the handle with two hands, I pounce or push downward in a quick motion which forms the plate with the excess clay being the sides of the plate or platter. Above is a good video of the pounce or push plate technique. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
