After a project is finished on the wheel and left to dry till ‘leather hard’, comes trimming. Trimming means to remove excess clay usually at the bottom half of an object so as to give it stability and also to give the pot aesthetic beauty.

Trimmings can be collected and submerged in water. As long as the clay is not contaminated. It can be recycled and used again.
