Wedging Boy

I Google "wedging boy" and found this quote:

"some plate-makers even require their boys to what is called wedge their clay, which is a very laborious process, and consists in lifting large lumps of clays, and throwing them forcibly down on a hard surface, to free it from air and render it more compact. These boys are usually thin and pale, and frequently suffer from pulmonary and digestive diseases. Sickness prevails among them extensively."

 Call Wedging Boy 1-800- WEDGE ME

Wedging boy does so much more than wedge!

I'm not a member of your club, but I'm thinking of moving my clay studio from Montana and joining!

Do you think Wedge Boy would work for multiple potters?

My favorite pottery job title is 'sagger maker's bottom knocker'. Is this, perhaps, his other skill?

That's great Kari. I love that you googled it. Although my ideal Wedging Boy is physically fit.
