Here we go, as suggested by Doug I beat out the base (6lb), rolled a 1m long sausage (8lb) and added the sausage to the base. It’s the biggest plate I’ve ever made, at the moment it measures 58cm diameter but you know what it’s like, it’ll be a saucer by the time it’s finished. Fingers crossed it’ll stay in one piece. I think I’m going to use it for a commission that I have for a plate with a lot of lettering around it. Haven’t decided yet though.
