Like that wire wedging, thanks for the post, you look like you had a super time.
you look so happy!In Seagrove the older potters have a wire attached to the wedging table the use the wire along with a heavy slapping of the clay together- very much like this. It has a real rythm to the movement and the sound- I also learned to wedge like he was wedging from one of the older potters-
if i ever go that big, i'll have to try the wire wedging... definitely a lot easier than wrestling with a giant piece of clay doing the chrysanthemum method. you look like you're having a great time in that picture.
I love his work. What a great experience for you. Looking forward to more.
