An off-white, 16#, plastic stoneware body with excellent throwing characteristics for beginning throwers and makers of larger forms.
This body has excellent green strength and is easily re-cycled after throwing. Used extensively by production potters for domestic ware, this off-white body is best suited to coloured glaze decoration. Fires to white with a grey tint at 1300ºC.
A good general handbuilding stoneware for modelling and sculpting.
A strong, gutsy, 16# handbuilding body, excellent for burnishing with good green strength. Smooth enough for throwing, it fires a salmon pink to deep, rich orange depending on the firing temperature. An excellent clay for school use, modelling sculptural busts or making garden ornaments etc. Fired with a suitable earthenware glaze to 1100ºC, this clay is ideal for all general handbuilding purposes. Often used in throwing large commercial garden pots.
A light, creamy white, 10# handbuilding body with good green strength. Quite plastic, yet good for large handbuilt pieces too. An excellent general purpose clay which could be used for beginning throwers as well as handbuilding.
An excellent clay for school students. Does not like to be fired when wet-damp.
Great for sculptural or modelling purposes because of its larger particle size.
An open, white, sandy body ideally suited to raku firing and thermal shock situations.
Equally good for handbuilding rugged sculptural forms. Fires to a stone-like appearance, not unlike granite at 1300ºC.
