Are we going to see the finished product? I am wondering what forms I would like to mould that are repetitive....

If I made a shallow bowl mould, would I slab roll the clay and lay it into the mould, when I am ready to make a bunch? Thanks, John.

The finished product looks like that Ram slab. Yes, you just make a bowl mold (or buy one) and roll out a slab and press it in. That is called a Slump Mold and the opposite is called a Hump Mold. I will try to make a video.
