Storing Clay Short- and Long- Term
How do you store your clay while at the bench and then forever?
Every metal clayer has his or her own method for storing clay short-term while working at the bench and long-term when they won't be using it for a while.
There is no right, proper, or correct way to do this.
You find a system that works best for you!
Here are some things to consider while you develop your own method of storing clay short- and long- term.
