I've been reclaiming clay again for the last few days. The picture above shows the mountain before I started dividing and wedging. It was still very wet, but my plaster slab was so waterlogged I couldn't use it any more, so I cracked on regardless.
This pic. shows the result so far. I'll need to let it dry out for at least another day before I wedge and knead it again. Hopefully by then it will be firm enough. The sun is out again which I hope will help.
So far as I wedged it I've found a clay stamp and a piece of chamois leather. I believe somewhere in the bin of clay is a mounted pin...I'm not looking forward to finding that!
Thanks for visiting.
