2.2 Press Moulding

Molding from a plastic container

Plastic/Metal Containers, Solid bisque clay or plaster mold of various open shapes can be used to form a vessel.

Simply place a sheet of thin plastic or cheesecloth on the mold (this will help to separate the vessel from the mold, then lay down a slap and trim out the excess clay around the edge. Don't leave up until it is at least leather hard.
