Crab Baking Dish

March 29, 2024

I'm continuing to play around with my new GR Potter Wallie forms. This is made with the 10 x 10 caserole form. The handles were made with a Diamond Core tools XL extruder. These are both ClayShareCon purchases. I bought less than last year, but still a lot of things to work through.

This dish was surprisingly simple to make. I rolled out a slab that was just slightly thicker than 1/4 inch. I put the form down, made relief cuts on the corners, and then flipped the whole thing over. I smoothed down the sides with a red rib, slip and scored the corners, and secured them. I extruded the handles and laid them on top so they would start drying together. After about 2 hours (I was doing other things) I flipped it over and took the form out. It was still pretty wet, but if I had left it on longer it could have cracked. I stamped my crabs and did minimal smoothing of the rim and attached the handles. The sides weren't dry enough to support it so I put underglaze bottles under them.

This picture was taken the next day when it had dried just enough to pull out the underglaze bottles and do some more clean up on the rim. Now for slooooow drying. Crab Baking Dish
