Be proud of me, guys! I just trashed some work I wasn't happy with, even though it was "good enough". Big step for me!

    One of the most humbling lessons to learn it to recycle that which is just-"alright".

Anybody with a Skutt wheel used the cuphead plaster batt system and is it any good?

    Well I have purchased a skutt and very excited for it arriving on Wednesday :DD
    Now I have a big hole where my money once was but it will be worth it when 20 years down the line it is still going strong.

    Well, you can pull several long, consistently thick handles, and then cut them into small sections to fit on the smaller wares. I guess it all depends on whether not you are keeping them, in which case your desired vessel-type will dictate the need for a handle. Or, if they will just be recycled, in which case get some handle practice, while you can.

    Trouble is, it's not settling out. Still looks as it was when I finished mixing it. Now decanted into four buckets not two. Come on sunshine, do your stuff.

Just got done reclaiming the heaping clay bin from my classroom, by hand. What, you think my arms got this toned by sitting around all day?

    Yeah,my Dad at loss how to explain my teaching job said I played with clay until my arms got tired and then played some more on the computer I didn't teach, had two playrooms. Ben your arms will recover, just as the clay recycled has.

    Honestly, wedging never really tires me out that much. Give me a few minutes, a quick drink and a snack, and I'm ready to go.
