I MUST try this!

Row's Pottery Shed

Always have fun impressing lace doilies into clay! In this case I made some plates. They are drying out.

Follow these steps:

  1. Roll slab of clay.
  2. Lay on top of the clay slab a lace doily and then rollover with a rolling pin to impress the doily into the clay.
  3. Take off doily and cut the plate out of the slab.
  4. Lay a piece of cotton cloth over a plate that you already have (to use as your mould) and lay your new plate over the top – push gently in the middle of your new plate so that it touches the bottom of your mould. This mould will help support the plate as it dries out.
  5. In my next post I’ll complete the steps (as they now need to be gently sanded on the edges and on their backs, fired, glazed and then fired again).
