Clay used in the craft center completes an entire life cycle with very little lost in the process. The life cycle of clay:

New Clay
Clay starts as it comes from the manufacturer
Pug Mill
The slip is processed by the Shimpo pug mill
Slip Buckets
Any slip left over from use is gathered in buckets
Recycled Clay
The recycled clay is ready for future potters to enjoy

 

There is other equipment in the studio, though, which is only for use by the staff who manage the center. This primarily consists of:
