Make spoons, platters, and asymmetrical shapes like an out-of-round serving dish with molded feet and a thrown rim. Compose with Multiple Shapes to make two-part forms like a butter dish or a stacking set of bowls. Make a pitcher out of two simple forms and then take it further by exploring handles and spouts for a proper teapot.
