Building new clay drying racks with assistant @t.glosby this morning to expand our clay making capabilities.
One of the things I offer to the assistants is access to all the wild materials that I have in stock. And access to all the processing facilities.
The clay isn’t free though… they have to work for it.
The process their own clay on their own time.
It’s actually helpful to establish a sense of ownership and responsibility to the material.
It’s pretty much an unlimited resource but when you have to work for it, there is an valuable sense of preciousness that gets attached to it.
These new racks will assure that the assistants can process clay to their hearts content.
