As Bronitsky (1986, pp. 212–218) notes, three clay properties are of interest to the potter: controllability, formability, and plasticity. Potters usually collapse these properties by feel into a general category of workability (Rice 1987, pp. 60–63; Rye 1981, p. 21). Potters assess workability by testing the clay’s ability to bend, as in a coil, without cracking, and to hold the form under pressure. Clay can be “soft,” which means the paste deforms easily but does not hold up under pressure, to “stiff,” in which the clay is hard to form yet 40 2 Intended Function: Inferring Manufacturing Performance holds up well under pressure.
