Techniques -- Stack and Slam Wire Wedging

Last week, I posted a video of the spiral wedging method where you can wedge a large amount of clay by concentrating on a small amount at a time. Be that as it may, it still requires some sort of wrist action to accomplish the task.  That is a tall task for someone with chronic wrist pain.

Today's post is another wedging method that doesn't really use the wrist. It requires cutting your piece of clay in half using a wire attached at 45 degrees to a vertical and horizontal support.  After cutting the clay, you rotate the individual pieces and slam one piece of top of each other.  The video is clearer than my explanation.
