"GR Pottery Forms are wood drape molds designed to be the inner portion of dinnerware and serving platters. A rim and a foot can easily be added to create the rest of the piece making it versitale and functional for the user. The cut and beveled fiberboard makes them durable and economical. Easy to use over and over again giving you a tool to create your personalized shallow objects. The forms are designed to be shallow so they are more versatile. Now most of the sizes are cut to line up and stack effectively creating another use as a deeper form.
I have tested the durability for over 10 years in my production line that I sold through art fairs and galleries. These forms are now available to you to use as a tool to express your ideas and creativity through your preferred method of surface techniques. They are the new potters wheel for the hand builder.
The forms are wood so to make them last for 1000s of uses make sure you let them dry in between each use. The timing of making them and removing the form from the slab is very similar to plaster. If left on too long your clay will crack, the wood will mold or start to get soft. Mold can easily be washed off with dish soap and if edges get rough you can use sand paper to smooth them.
The forms ship really well and can be easily stored in a dry space. No release agent, cleaning or sealing necessary."
