BOXING - Stacking work prepared in clay.

ca: APILAR - Els treballs fets amb argila.

es: APILAR – Los trabajos hechos con arcilla.

Boxing is packing bowls, cups and jars rim-to-rim and foot-to-foot while drying and when being bisque fired. This can be done when they are cheese-hard. It helps to stop warping while the clay is drying, as it slows down the process.
