How do I wedge my clay?

Cut wedging

Cut wedging: Cut wedging has two steps: 1. Cut a chunk of clay in half with a wire that is attached diagonally between a horizontal and a vertical surface. 2. Slap half of the clay, cut face down on the horizontal surface. Throw the other half of clay, cut face up on top of the first half. Repeat this step until the lumps, soft spots, and air pockets are removed from the clay.
