Press molding is the method used to make plates with a slight curve that are in one piece. .
There are two types –
A hump mold curves outwards and a flat, rolled out piece of clay is laid over it. It is usually made with a handle, to make separating it from the clay easier.
A drop mold is formed with the curved shape of a plate indented and the clay is laid (dropped) into it.
