Plaster batt

Another type of batt.
I don't know what I'd do without plaster batts.

I have three in high rotation in my studio. They hardly get time to dry. I recycle clay on them and use them as a surface on which to wedge. Plaster has the marvelous ability to absorb water from clay and provides a non-stick surface.

Wet handles lying on plaster firm quickly for attaching but you have to keep an eye on them, especially in summer, as they can suddenly become sticks!
