Wedging is a very effective mixing method


Tuesday 15th July 2014

16,000 layers of clay, but still not mixed! Soft and stiff slabs were interlayered, then the piece repeatedly cut in half and slammed downward to re-flatten (doubling the number of layers each time). Yet it is still not mixed! 30 seconds of wedging is all it takes to finish the job, wedging is a very effective mixing technique.
