Recycle your foam!


I am a big fan of recycling and reusing things. I guess most potters are packrats. I love using this black foam that you find in cone boxes in the studio for putting my slab pieces on. It's a great thing to use that is soft and won't scratch up your form. So, if you're local, will you please save me your foam if you aren't using it yourself? I could use a lot!

I use it as sponge on a stick for dabbing water out of my tall forms. It's a great sponge material & I just attach it to a small dowel with a rubber band. Works great - & it's cheap.

Great idea about using it as as sponge.

Is that what you use it for Joy?

No but that's a great idea. I use it under slabs that I drape over plastic containers. The slabs are my wall pieces and tiles, etc. It helps because I don't have a lot of round drape molds around, and instead I use the bottom of large yogurt containers (another thing I recycle) with the foam on top and the slab draped over upside down on that.
