Tool Talk Thursday Clay Cutter
Today our tool of choice is a Clay Cutter. This is the kind of cutter used to cut that block of clay up into usable slices.I bag mine up into freezer bags so that I have a few ready when I go into the studio to work. They stay moist in the baggies for a very long time.
I have chosen the smaller model clay cutter since I work on a small scale. The reason I have picked this cutter is that when I use the other kind of wire cutters, the string wire type, my slabs come out very irregular. I wanted more consistent sizes so that they will work better in my new slab roller. I will be featuring that tool at a later date.
