Hi Laura,

A pugmil is used to mix clay. It looks kind of like a giant meat grinder.
It's great for recycling large amounts of used clay in a relatively short
period of time. Some pugmils are capable of de-airing the clay as well as
just mixing it to a workable consistancy. Recycling clay for a school
clay program with out a pugmil is an exhausting process.

The artist/teacher puts themselves at risk of damaging their hands with
carpel tunnel syndrome from the repeating actions required to mix clay
with out a pugmil.
