In the Studio

By the time I had all of the clay pugged it was time to head home, but I made a couple of quick plates to check the clay. It still felt a little airy. As I mentioned in a long forgotten post, my pug mill is pretty old, but still churning away. There isn't a vacuum pump to take the air out, so I still have to wedge the clay . That's OK with me.
Tom Turner says to let the clay sit a day before using it. I will see if its any different today.
