Making the Ollas from ‘recycled’ clay.

by runningwaterpottery3533

   All of the ollas that I took to the garden show were made from recycled clay. By that, I mean clay that had dried out and was no longer workable. Potters tend to do alot of recycling. No matter how well you have your clay wrapped in plastic, it will eventually dry out so every potter needs to know how to ‘reclaim’ his clay. That’s the word we use; reclaim. I suspect I have enough dried out clay to make, perhaps, 100 more ollas.
