Great tips about squared baking dishes! @darrenellispottery with @repostapp
this is my technique to square off the base of the oven dishes, it's much quicker for me to do it this way, rather than throwing the wall separate to the base. once the pots have firmed up over night they can be flipped and the joint can be reworked.
another benefit of this technique is the joint can be done without the use of scoring and slip as the clay is the same consistency and shrinks at the same rate avoiding cracking whilst drying.
when i first started making baking dishes i got them so so wrong. i made them far too thin, the thought process being they wouldn't be too heavy when taking them out of the oven and to the table.
i took the first one i made home and cooked with it, the result of the thin walls meant the outside edges of the food over cooked and left the middle undercooked, not great.
so back to the drawing board, i almost doubled the weight but kept the dimensions the same. it worked perfectly after that little change, the heat could distribute throughout the food slowly and evenly.
i have also gone back to my original design, they are simpler and hold more food!

Just over here happy to be in my studio, today and everyday. seriously, everyday spent working on my own pots is a blessing. hope y’all are having a wonderful thursday. pst... my friend @jennyflax made that beautiful p*t behind me
Just a little work to form chawan #23 out of my bizen clay. i snuck #22 in on the second black raku clay test. plus there are more clays to come. i had to add one other thing to do with my never ending glaze mixing and testing.
