Quick Tip: Multitasking Molds


There is more than meets the eye with some slumping molds.

They can certainly be used to form pieces that utilize the entire surface, but consider the options when slumping pieces that only make use of a portion of the mold. In our studios, we’ve found Rectangular Slumper Mold (008929) and Round Slumper Mold (008629) to be particularly versatile.

Rectangular Slumper Mold

The central lengthwise portion of the Rectangular Slumper (008929) produces an elegant 5 × 17˝ centerpiece with upturned corners. When slumping a 9 × 14˝ blank in the center of the same mold, it also produces a piece with gently elevated edges. (See full article for visual examples.)

Round Slumper Mold

Similarly, a 9˝ diameter circle in the 12˝ Round Slumper (008629) with a gently sloped rim and a flat base is a perfect first course or generous dessert plate.

Tip: An 11˝ diameter round blank slumped in Plain Plate Mold (008721) and you now have a lovely companion dinner plate.

Check your studio for these and other possibilities. Ready, set, slump!
