The summer recycle. I have buckets of scraps that I have collected all winter. Clay scraps and mush end up as a big globby consistency - too mushy to work with. It gets laid out on plater slabs to suck the moisture out.
After they are cut and weighed I put them on a big wooden board and keep them wrapped in plastic until the next day when I turn them into strikers.
After they are thrown on the wheel they sit and dry out - get fired and glazed and then they are headed out
