So… how do you reclaim your clay potters out there? After the clay trimmings rehydrating in water for quite a long time, i remove all visible water and then still allow more water to evaporate. I then take a paint mixer on the end if my drill and mix the bejeeeebeeeze out of the clay till it is smooth smooth smooth like cake batter. I then put some old cotton sheets over my plaster bats and pour the mixed reclaimed clay on top of the sheets. Why sheets as a barrier you ask? It does slow the process a little bit and actually I find it evens out the drying a bit too. With the cotton sheet under the clay, i can also easily move it mid drying (with the aid of some ether friendly hands) #corisandlerpottery #corisandler

Im in a #littledish mood. This series has a single thumb rest or what ever you'd like to rest there. These were thrown off the hump and have a really elegant profile toward the foot (i'd like to think). My friend in Kyoto saysbthese would be awesome for creme brule. (Ive got to get our more often!!!) what about a little amuse bouche or appetizer. Also a delicious succulent dessert or home made sherbet. The list is endless. (Well maybe that takes it a bit far, but… what would you use it for?
