Female: You do have to prepare the clay and when you prepare the clay it’s called wedging. And what it does clay sometimes have this air bubbles in them and what happen is that if you don’t wedge and take the air bubbles out, when you fire it in the kiln these air bubbles will pop and it might going to break your pieces. So you want to totally compress the clay together.
Female: And I just wanted to say to everybody who’s watching us today. Kiln is the oven, yeah I didn’t know that but now I do.
Female: So you wet your on this table and it’s kind of hard so ease for you. This is color that wedging the clay.
Female: And it take some muscles right there.
Female: It takes muscles, it takes muscle and this is a really, small bowl of clay.
Female: Okay I’m going to take that also.
Female: Oh, yes.
Female: So that you can see the work that’s happening here.
Female: And generally, depending on the type of clay you have, depending on how old it is, how many air bubbles you think it might have. You could wedge it up to a 100 times. You might need to wedge of only 20 times but I mean this has been pre-wedge so I don’t have to wedge it like a 50 time really. But this is how it looks like. When you hit it pack it nice and firm and there you go.
Whatever clay you’re not using you want to put back in your bag.
Female: So that it’s doesn’t dry out.
Female: So it doesn’t dry out, this clay is a very precarious medium and if it dries out then it’s all over.
