The Wolfe Bird's journey continues into the Clayshed. The Clayshed crew preps molds for pouring and then fills them with liquid clay, called slip. As the mold draws moisture out of the slip, a clay shell forms around the inside of the mold. The crew adds more slip as needed, allowing the mold to sit for varying amounts of time depending on the size of the bird and the thickness desired in the final shape. Once the clay is thick enough, they pour out the remaining slip and set the clay-filled molds aside to dry.
