Here are my tips to make sure you get nice flat bases every time. First and foremost, make sure that you have a uniform slab of clay. Uneven slabs can lead to uneven drying, resulting in warping. Step 2 is to compress your clay before you start building. It might seem like a small step, but it can make a big difference! Another effective trick is to ensure slow, uniform drying. Cover it with plastic and add some weights on top to keep the base flat. You can use kiln posts, glaze bottles or other pieces from your studio to weigh down your pieces.

I’ve heard this topic come up a few times since I’ve started using a rolling pin to make plates. I’m all for taking an easier route. And I’ve had such success using a rolling pin, as opposed to my arm. But that’s just my personal opinion.   This clay was the perfect consistency today. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. 😌   #iliketoplaywithclay #handmade #handmadepottery #pottery #wheelthrown #mug #mugshot #clayart #claylove #wheelthrowing #trimmingpottery #trimming #wheelthrownpottery #wheelthrownceramics #wheelthrowing #ihavethisthingwithceramics #potterylove #potteryistic #potteryofinstagram #instapottery #ceramiclife #potterylife #ceramics #ceramik #plates" Pottery, Mugs, Pottery Wheel, Wheel Thrown Ceramics, Wheel Thrown Pottery, Clay Plates, Ceramic Plates, Pottery Ideas, Pottery Mugs
