[Clayart] Help please - 3 to 5 mm clay spheres

Hello Folks,


Long time no write.


I need some advice / help please.

I am doing some work on growing my bonsai in fired balls / spheres of
earthenware clay [ and it is porous ] 

For my last effort I sat and cut rectangle lengths of about 5 mm in cubic
shape, then for 3 hours or so I hand rolled them into balls.


I would like to explore this idea further, but can anyone suggest a faster
way to make these balls.

3 hrs later I had enough balls to fill a small bonsai pot.

I ended up however with closer to 8 mm balls.

Thanks in Advance
