Jiggering is a method to form the outside of a plate and jollying the inside. There is a fixed, unmovable arm that holds a template. A template is half the profile of the piece being made and is cut out in a strong, thin material like plastic, wood or metal. The mold shaping the inside or outside is on a wheel and covered by a flat piece of clay. The wheel is rotated and the template held by the jolly against the clay shapes it by scraping off the unnecessary clay as it turns.Read more about: Card plate
