HydroBat Hump Molds
If you have ever struggled with adding a foot ring to your hump-mold-formed functional work, you will love our HydroBat hump molds. Made out of the same durable, absorbent plaster as our standard HydroBats, our HydroBat hump molds stand out from the crowd because you can fit them directly on any standard pottery wheel head and throw a foot ring or an entire form with ease! Our HydroBat hump molds feature two rubber grommets cast into the underside of the form, with most molds set 10" apart, for fitting directly on your wheel head. For the smaller diameter hump molds with grommets set at 6" we have the Hydrobat Adapter Bat. After placing the hump mold on your wheel, simply lay a slab on top of the hump mold. Next, you make a foot in one of two easy ways - by gathering clay from the slab’s center while your wheel is in motion, or by attaching a coil and compressing it to the back. Please note that you can still use these forms as regular hump molds if you don’t have a wheel! HydroBat hump molds allow beginners and professionals to consistently make larger slab-based forms with ease and speed.
Here at The Ceramic Shop, we’ve listened to our customers over the years and have come up with a nice variety of forms and profiles for our Hydro-Bat hump molds. If you have questions about the right HydroBat hump mold for your project, studio, or classroom, we’re always happy to help!
As these products are produced by hand and shipped soon after manufacturing, we recommend that any Hydrobat, Hump Mold, or Slump Mold be unboxed immediately upon receiving them to allow any traces of residual moisture to leave the product.
