Craft Crank earthenware / stoneware clay ~ grogged
Suggested firing temperature : 1100 - 1280°c
A really lovely looking clay with a rustic sort of vibe. This clay has a large firing range so it can be used as either an earthenware or stoneware clay. The clay body has a good degree of plasticity, containing a coarse silica grog. It is suitable for sculptural and slab work but not really advised for throwing on the wheel due to its high grog content.
Available for COLLECTION ONLY from the studio in Bedminster, Bristol - as due to the weight I cannot currently post this item.
Before using, clay should be kneaded to ensure that the moisture content is even and to expel any air bubbles. Always avoid using the clay straight from the bag, as this can result in warping and cracking as there could be inconsistencies of softer and harder clay.
I would always advise to test how your clays and glazes interact with each other but I know this clay to work well with Duncan and Gare glazes.
