Use the uWedge Mat as a handbuilding surface instead of covering your entire table in canvas. It cleans easily at the sink and is portable enough to take anywhere. The canvas side holds up to sharp knives and is great in a slab roller for creating a smooth surface. Use the rubber side for glazing or any job that needs to be wiped up easily. This is the perfect all-around work mat for ceramics. The uWedge mat protects dining tables and carpets from modeling clay, glue, and other messy crafts. Professional clay artists love the canvas side for slab building, coil building and oh yeah, you can wedge on it.
