Muddy Waters Clay Center "recycles" its studio clay for use by members and as a class supply. Members' clay scraps are collected in large containers, mixed with dry clay in an industrial mixer, and then squeezed and rolled out of a special mixer caller a pugger into 25# bags. The pugging process is done in a small enclosed room, which helps contain the dust and noise made in this process.
Studio members take turns pugging the clay.
