Free Form Pottery Candy Dish
by Kim Ross
2 Pounds Of Clay
1 Can Or Glass Jar
1 Sheet Of Paper
Stamps, Sea Shells, Bark, etc.
Roll clay out with slab roller or rolling pin to thickness. Make sure no air bubbles are in clay. Using your stamps, sea shells, etc., pressure firmly a pattern into clay. Turn clay over where design is facing down and place onto can or glass jar that has paper over top of it. Shape clay the way you want it to look, using newspaper to lift up clay or let clay hang freely. Cut shapes into clay using needle tool for handles or design pattern. Once clay is leather hard remove from jar or can and let finish drying completely before firing.
