'wedgin' wire

On wednesday I made this wedging wire. I have been contemplating buying one from georgies, the local ceramic supply, but decided to try to make my own. I am very greatful that i did because the one at georgies was about 75$. I made mine in about 15 minutes for less than 20$. I found all the matterials i needed at my local home depot. The design is pretty straitforward, a wire at an angle ontop of a table. I used some twisty bolt things, scientific term, to tighten it and that was pretty much it.


  1. how do you actually use a wedging wire? is it like having toggle cutters permanently suspended?

  2. pretty much its for cutting clay in half then slamming it back together repeatedly to mix it to a more even consistancy
