Spiral wedging takes its name from the shape created in the clay during the process: The clay creates a spiral pattern. The Spiral wedging technique is a little more advanced than the Ram’s Head method and takes a little more skill to master. It’s worth putting in the time though, as I find you can wedge more clay in one go. It is also quicker, which gets you started faster. This method is actually very difficult to do slowly, building up your speed and rhythm makes it easier. Getting the spiral going is the hardest part, but once you have started the spiral shape it will become easier. This video was designed as companion material for my book 'Pottery for Beginners'.

Spiral Wedging is the wedging technique preferred by most potters because it is the most efficient means of breaking up thixotropy, removing air, and mixing. Another really great reason to learn spiral wedging is you always end up with a cone shape, the perfect shape for the potters wheel. Spiral wedging is a little tricky to learn, so check out this video for an up close look from two different camera angles at this essential wedging technique. Hi there!

This weeks video is a little different, but it's one that has been requested numerous times. It shows how I reclaim and wedge clay ready to use in the studio. I use both the cut wedging technique and the spiral wedging method too and I'll certainly be making a more in-depth video in the future about spiral wedging if that's something that'll appeal to you guys?

Douglas Phillips demonstrates the spiral kneading method of preparing clay for use on the wheel. Only a small amount of clay is worked on each stroke allowing the potter to prepare quantities of clay that would be too big to knead by other methods. This technique is also known as the Oriental or Chrysanthemum method. See my other videos for more demonstrations or visit the Ridge Pottery website 🤍. I’ve taken several videos at Ridge Pottery Summer Schools. The demonstrations are informal, often impromptu, and show a particular making technique and/or illustrate elements of a pot’s shape, form and function. As well as the demonstration there is often discussion with students that lend the videos an informal quality which (I think) adds to their interest and enjoyment.
More reclaim, more spiral wedging, gradually working my way through the pile of reclaim that has been festering for a month or two now The textural block you see at the beginning is how the clay appears after being peeled off the plaster batts after sitting there for a few days, drying out. Much of the moisture evaporates or is absorbed by the plaster and after prodding it for a few days, to check that it’s in the right condition, it’ll be taken off and wedged. Spiral wedging is a skill I forced myself to learn when I was 17 years old, I was watching potters do it on YouTube and I knew from that very moment that I must figure it out for myself. So, I squashed lumps of clay onto workbenches and struggled, for months, a few times a week until finally the mass of stoneware started taking shape. _ Instagram – 🤍 TikTok – 🤍 Website – 🤍
A #Shorts video showing the process that underpins every pot thrown on the wheel. This procedure of folding and pressing the clay rhythmically creates a spiral of ever decreasing size that gradually stretches and pops any pockets of air trapped inside and also makes it one, homogenous texture.

I walk you through some tips and thoughts on how to Spiral Wedge stoneware clay. Hopefully this can help you practice some! Second part is me trying to "Rams Head" wedge the clay, which I've never done before. Just goes to show that it really does take a lot of practice, and even a pottery who has been making for 10 years still need to learn things!

Wedging is a way of mixing the clay by hand to even out the moisture contained in it. It will help rid the clay of any air bubbles and get it into the best shape to work with. This will mean you are far less likely to have problems later on in the making process😵💫. There are three main ways to wedge (although you may know more): slam cut wedging, spiral wedging and ram’s head wedging. Wedging will feel a little tricky at first, which is normal. But the more you practice, the easier it will become. It is worth the effort, I promise. And as a bonus, after wedging you won’t need to go to the gym! 😝💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻I’ll share more detail on each method in the next few days. 🏻Learn pottery with me 🤍KaraLeighFordCeramics

First in the series: “Throwing a Cylinder/Making a Mug”. A short introduction to the series then Jeff shows how to wedge clay in preparation for throwing or hand building. Jeff says, “There are several ways to wedge clay but I’ve found Spiral Wedging the most simple and effective. Clay that’s very wet and sticky may be difficult to wedge and should be sliced or rolled into 1” thick slices and allowed to dry for a short time. Also, clay that’s become stiff can be sliced into 1” thick slices and very briefly soaked in water to soften before wedging. Commercial clay, direct from the plastic bag can be wedged immediately.” If you have questions, please post below.

For those of you keen to work with larger pieces of clay, here’s a video to introduce you to spiral or chrysanthemum wedging. Jess already posted a really in depth video on ram’s head wedging, but I included a section on that method for smaller pieces of clay to show you how spiral wedging is just a variation on that theme. If your ram’s head is already rocking, you can jump ahead to 6:50 for the nitty gritty on spiral wedging and how to orient your finished piece of prepared clay to the wheel.

This video is a guide to wedging clay. Learning to properly wedge clay is a basic and essential skill for any potter. Anyone who has tried to roll a slab, or throw a piece of clay on the wheel just to experience pesky bubbles which ruin the piece knows just how important proper wedging is. Proper wedging of clay will eliminate air bubbles as well as create a smooth homogenous claybody which is even in moisture. This video shows the method I teach my students in class. I show two methods of wedging in this video- an asymmetrical spiral wedging where the clay is rotated around a point (mine being my left hand), resulting in a conical form to the clay as you wedge, and the symmetrical rams-head wedging, (I realized belatedly I mistakenly called it rams-horn) where both hands push evenly during rotation, resulting in a clay forming rams-head shape. Whichever of these two ways my students choose to wedge, the most important thing to remember is that the clay is rotating within itself, and should NOT incorporate air during the process. If you have clay which has stiffer and wetter areas, wedging is crucial for creating a blended homogeneous consistency. Softer clay is easier to wedge than very stiff clay as well. As a side note: one thing I don’t discuss is avoiding a bad habit I see many of my kids come to me with from younger grades. They want to take their lump of clay and throw or drop it on the table multiple times. This indeed will COMPRESS the clay, but it won’t properly mix it or remove air bubbles when stiffer. This is a no-no in my classroom. I try to teach them to do it properly for best results. I am using a table which is covered with heavy canvas. The canvas allows the clay to release from the porous surface, as opposed to working directly on the formica top which would cause it to stick. The canvas must be diligently cleaned after use with water, as it really holds dust. The taller wedging table to the right in the video is a plaster filled top, covered with canvas. I find it better in concept than in practicality, as it is just too tall for me to comfortably use. If you are 6’ tall, it is probably a perfect height for you. Many potters I know use Hardibacker Board for their wedging surface- as it is sturdy, durable, and yet somewhat absorbant to release the clay from sticking. Other potters I know highly recommend using a birch plywood wood surface which is not sealed as a wedging surface. All surfaces should be cleaned well with water when done to avoid unhealthy dust. The cutting wire is a great little add if you can have an affixed wire nearby for slicing your clay as you wedge. When slicing, I will slam down the slices perpendicular to the table to realign the particles and drive out the air bubbles. Just remember to clean the wire off as you work to prevent dry chunks getting in your clay!

I have my own studio in my home basement, where I work on my personal pottery for my Etsy site; 🤍 I started my Youtube channel to make videos to help my students if they are absent and miss a demo, or if they would like to explore more advanced techniques independently. I have been amazed to reach such a wider audience than my own students!

Spiral kneading, or spiral wedging, is a technique for removing air bubbles from clay and for mixing the clay up ready to be used. In this video I explain the principle of spiral kneading and why you might want to learn to do it.
David Voorhees demonstrates in his wheel throwing online class how to do the spiral wedging technique. He presents the Porcelain Tips For Wheel Pottery online workshop at TeachinArt, the online school of art where professional artists answer students art questions. David, functional potter and owner of David Voorhees Pottery in North Carolina, has more than 40 years ceramic experience and is internationally recognized as pottery teacher who specializes in porcelain clay and wood firing. He also paints on clay. Links: David Voorhees: (🤍 Porcelain throwing class: (🤍 TeachinArt online workshops (🤍

With all my parcels sent work can begin again, which, sadly meant wedging up a few thick slabs of stoneware like this that I’d been neglecting, all wrapped up in plastic for almost a month now. I start by cutting away smaller, more manageable blocks, each of which is then spiral wedged until the consistency feels smooth and even throughout. As these slabs of reclaim had been sitting out for so long the outside had developed a firm crust, whilst inside they were still very damp and soft. This means that the first few folds are difficult, yet as soon as the two firmness’s began to mesh it becomes very manageable and in fact was almost too soft to actually wedge, which is good, as it means it’ll be perfect for throwing a batch of tiny bowls with—the next task of the day. #wedging #recycle #clay #handmade #pottery #stoneware #craft #floriangadsby #satisfying #asmr _ Instagram – 🤍 TikTok – 🤍 Website – 🤍
This is the first step of every throwing project - and in the case of larger orders - represents a serious exercise session. I find too that the clay, like cooking, is often better if left a day after the preparation. It also gives a chance to get your breath back! It's really worth spending the time and energy needed at this stage, it can avoid wasted effort further down the making line...
