Reinforcing A Fragile Form

11 October 2010 - 08:04 AM

I make leaf forms in low-fire clay. The stems are fragile and very often snap off the leaf. My first experiment was to make a kanthal wire skeleton for the stem by wrapping the wet clay around it: no good, clay shrinks and cracks around the wire. I'm going to try nylon fibers next. What else has anyone used successfully, please
