ANVIL - Pottery.

ca: ENCLUSA – Ceràmica.

es: YUNQUE – Cerámica.

Anvil is a stone or piece of wood that is curved, like an egg. It is held inside a jar against the wall, to support the clay and prevent it from breaking while beating on the outside with a paddle. Beating enlarges the jar, thins out the clay and strengthens it.
