I thought clay came in plastic bags????





On my bike ride today I could hear the wooden hammers breaking up the clay for processing. The guy takes a sledge hammer and breaks the pieces down to feed into this hammer mill and then the smaller rocks are shoveled into the holes for the wooden hammers to crush. The powder is then added to the pools of water for slaking and then pumped into the filter press to make big pancakes of clay.
