MAKING CLAY VESSELS

The raw material for the production of dishes is clay, which the potter usually obtains in autumn and dumps it into a previously prepared pit. In winter, the clay freezes, which has a positive effect on its structure. During this time, the potter sprinkles the clay with water several times, pricks it with a pitchfork to make it soften.

Then the clay should be mixed well. For this purpose, it is beaten with a hammer or a wooden stick, cut into streams, moistened with water and compacted again into a block. Repeat these steps.

The clay should also be well deaerated - for this purpose, a piece of clay is cut off and thrown with great force so as to get rid of air bubbles. It is a long and important clay preparation process to obtain the right raw material.

Only now can we start turning on the potter's wheel. More..
