If you google “slab” you’ll find:
noun 1. a large, thick, flat piece of stone, concrete, or wood, typically rectangular.
verb 1. remove slabs from (a log or tree) to prepare it for sawing into planks.
Until April, in my mind, slabs were either a type of fencing used to corral pigs or large hunks of meat. I had no idea “slab” could be used as a verb., nor did I know I’d be using slabs to express my artistic abilities.
But alas… I slabbed my clay and used the slabs to create pottery. And I’m never looking back.
