In my last post I talked about slump, hump molds but I forgot another company that have traditional wooden hump molds Bamboo Tools.  They also have an ingenius slump mold that you can use to make square, rectangular, a mold for hexagon and another for octagon plates.  You can get them in wither a 1 1/4 or 2 1/4 depth.  you can see them here Bamboo Adjustable Molds.

While you are at their website check out their Bamboo adjustable pot gauge perfect for repetition throwing.
