>All clay goes into large plastic buckets from the kitchen. I continually add water to reconstitute. Art Survey students, who are new to our dept.(we have too many to make a mess) and wheel work can take clay from the new boxes. All advanced students, Art II 3-D, Ceramics III and IV must reconstitute clay. Whenever we make plaster, we pour a new bat. This way the students can spoon the wet clay onto a plaster bat and work it out until manageable for handbuilts. They really don't like it, but we find that they don't waste any or leave their clay out since it does take work to prepare it for their projects.
