Why is wedging clay important?
the purpose of wedging clay is to get the air bubles out.
if you dont getthe air bubles out, when being fired, the air will try to escape your now hard pot, when it can't , it will explode your pot.
What wedging does for clay is get it to the right consistency so that you can work with it. Wedging also helps you to blend different clays together.
The term "wedging clay" derives from the ceramic and pottery procedures to prepare clay by hand.
the purpose of wedging clay is to get the air bubles out. if you dont getthe air bubles out, when being fired, the air will try to escape your now hard pot, when it can't , it will explode your pot.
The process of removing air bubbles from clay is called "wedging."
Clay wedging is the act of preparing clay for the pottery wheel in order throw your pottery. wedging is accomplished by kneading the clay, usually on a plaster surface, until the clay is uniform in moisture and texture. Some potters like to cut the mass of clay and slap it down hard on the surface and then slap the 2 pieces of clay together with force. The idea is to get rid of any air… Read More
Coning is an action performed by a potter on a potter's wheel. The potter aplies pressure to the clay in such a way that the clay forms into a cone shape with the point of the cone sticking up. Coning is done so that the clay can be centered more easily and air bubbles will be forced out of the clay. Some potter's think that coning can replace wedging clay.
I'm not sure of the answer to this question. yes i am stupid
ice wedging doesn't occur near the equartor because the is to much pressure
Wedging is to potters as kneading is to bakers, only we don't do it for the same reasons. Wedging helps to make a lump of clay uniform, for example if it is slightly firmer on one side than the other. It also helps to remove air bubbles. Basicaly it is mixing it up in a special way using the heals of the hands on a hard (wood or plaster) surface.
It is important to have clay in your soil because clay is fertile
if you are using recycled clay, wedge the clay on a solid surface, use your cutter, and cut in half, if you see any wavy lines in it, it needs more wedging. if you are using new clay you should not have to wedge but use it, making sure as when you are building that you do not leave air pockets in the piece work, otherwise it can explode in the kiln, worst case scenario
As long as clay is not fired, it can be recycled by simple soaking it in water. Eventually it will return to a liquid state (slip). You can then dry it to a workable condition by putting it on plaster slabs and then wedging it to homogenize the clay mass. To simplify the process and make a much more manageable clay, studios use pug mills which do the mixing and removing excess water and air… Read More
wedging ice to a cake at a wedding
The natives in North America collected clay by a simple process. They would basically dig about a half foot to a foot beneath the ground where soft dirt would lay. After collecting the amount needed they would add water and fine sand while wedging the dirt to the desired texture.
working with clay
Ice wedging, is mechanical weathering.
No. Frost wedging is a type of weathering.
Throwing a clay pot, the age old art of making pottery on a wheel, is a process that requires many steps. Assuming the potter does not have to make his own clay, the first step toward the finished product is wedging the clay. Here, the potter kneads the clay to prepare it for throwing. Wedging cannot be rushed. A minimum of fifty turns is required to rid the clay of air pockets and align its… Read More

Whenever water freezes it expands causing wedging.
Ice wedging is a type of erosion
Ice wedging is a type of mechanical weathering.
No. Root wedging is a form of mechanical weathering.
Ice Wedging Or Frost Wedging
The most important facts one needs to know about Clay Center, Kansas is that it was named for the American statesman Henry Clay in 1857. The town has a population of approximately 4,000 people.
Unlikely to be an important or significant cause, since there are only a few places anywhere on the equator where ice ever exists.
Frontal wedging is when warm air and cold air collide at the surface, or front.
No, frost wedging is caused by water expanding, not contracting.
It is important to knead clay because if you don't and begin to smack it you will put air in it and the more air you put in it the more likely it is to blow up in the firer.
Water expands as it freezes is the property of water that makes frost wedging possible. Frost wedging is sharp cornered boulders on bare mountain tops.
Ice wedging is physical weathering. It is physical because it does NOT change its substance.
The type of weathering that causes Ice Wedging is Mechanical/ Physical Weathering.
forest wedging is example of physical weathering process which water expands upon freezing by 10%
henry clay and james monroe were very important
becuse he is very important and he ade gooo and clay
Wedging of the thoracic vertebrae is caused by compression fractures. This usually is the result of trauma or osteoporosis.
A good way is to get some Melamine, (home centers have it). Get a 4x8ft x 3/4in. sheet and cut in half, glue both halves together, the 1-1/2in. thick table top will be strong enough for what your doing. For legs you have 2 ways you can go, these same home-centers have legs you can just screw to your top, or I recommend a individual tool stand. (the tops vary in size as do the… Read More

in the polar regions i saw that a rainfall that used to fallen water has had been ice wedging
The Compromise of 1850
Frost wedging occurs when liquid water flows into rock cracks and crevices and then expands upon freezing. The wedging creates a deeper or larger crack which can then be further expanded by additional frost wedging. Additionally, the frost wedging creates additional rock surface which can then be attacked by chemical weathering, mainly by the natural acidity of rainwater.
The growth of tree roots is chemical, wedging(?), pushing thru the ground(?), would be a physical change.
Ice wedging, also called frost wedging or frost shattering is a process where water seeps into cracks in rocks and freezes. Since water expands when it freezes this cpushes the cracks further open, eventually breaking the rock apart.
Wet or even damp clay will explode or crack in the kiln as the water tries to escape from the hot pot. It is important to slowly dry the piece to make it safe to fire.
Ice wedging occurs when water seeps into a crack and freezes. When frozen, the water expands and forces the crack further apart.
because if you dont it will fall upart
write about things on clay tablets
they are both a type of physical weathering and both may break rock through a crack or a crevice. Frost wedging is when water enters a crack and may freeze causing the crack to expand because when water freezes it contrasts and expands. Root wedging is when a plant grows through a crack causing the roots to expand and break through the rock. -michael yap
