Understanding The Makeup Of Clay To Get Trim Marks Like This

Recommended Posts

Anyone understand how to get such a fuzzy trim mark? Fuzzy isn't the best work, but it looks like the clay is torn rather than trimmed. Is it because there is a lot of sand in the clay? Or because the clay is really short? Or another reason?

diesel, that looks like a fairly recent shimpo banding wheel.  it is well abraded by the rough clay but it has the division marks that are not found on older ones.

i don't own a shimpo banding wheel, but i'm accepting donations, new or old one.... or the large 2 foot diameter banding wheel not available here in US

 

Kurinuki is Japanese teminiolgy for had carved, dug out process....

 

While I use a wooden knife or bamboo knife, Much of the forming process is with modern tools..... Dolan

 

I have to admit it is a difficult process.......
