Using a slab roller to make a box form.

Here i used a slab roller and rolled out a slab that i then wrapped this around a plastic box that itself was wrapped in newspaper so that the shape would come loose after it had dried a bit. When it had dried over night i first worked the top in being able to work from the inside and then left it upside down for a about four hours to harden up then i placed it on a flat slab and folded the edges around to form the base. I later added the stamps and lid. Check out the menu bar and you will find  the page for , How to make a ceramic box, this will show how i make these boxes.
