WHy not consider making it a mosaic type?- think
outside the functional platter. It doesn't have to be
functional does it? Most large platters end up
displayed, consider using the platter you molded it on
as a base to attach it to. I know how frustrating that
is. When I've done large slab pieces in bowls,
shrinking was a major issue. We did alot of gluing
that year! I sometimes use really a cheap garbage bag
in between the clay and the platter mold. The clay can
move that way as it shrinks instead of sticking to the
bowl or form.
Good luck!
