Our selection of

We have a small carefully curated clay selection for sale to the public and for members. Please take care of the following attributes when choosing a clay

purpose: Hand-building, Sculpture, Raku, Throwing, Casting or a combination/modification of these methods

size of piece or project: Larger scales require more strength and less shrnkage, this normally means a clay with more or coarser grog

firing range/cone: for most uses a mid fire stoneware clay is the first choice but sometimes higher or lower firing clays are desirable

colour and texture: The colour and texture of fired clay can vary from the raw mass and will affect the colour and finish of the glazed areas.
