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?
