Hi Erik,
I just wanted to thank you for your recent post where you mentioned us=
saran wrap when cutting tiles from the slab. A current project required c=
several 5" diameter tiles. I found that the lip of a plastic flower pot w=

the right size to cut them. Remembering your post, I draped plastic film =
the clay first, then used the flowerpot as a cookie cutter. The film peel=

easily, leaving a delightfully rounded top edge on the tiles, completely=3D=

is definitely a keeper!

Thanks again,
