Speckled Clays 

  • Speckled Buff. [GC top seller] Fires to a pinkish, tan sand color with the most beautiful freckles shining through. Has a mild gritty texture. 

  • Calico. The cheapest mid fire clay body that we carry. It is a wetter throwing clay with some serious grit. It fires a grey neutral with medium speckles (less freckly than speckled buff). Susceptible to minor pin holes.


Tan Clay

  • Moroccan Sand. A smooth throwing clay that fires to a . . .well, a light brown sand color. It’s like the perfect tan, neutral without the yellow hues. True talk: this is my favorite clay to throw with and I just can’t figure out why it’s not flying out the door.  


Dark Clays

  • B3 Brown. The most stunning dark brown, almost black, clay. Has a slightly coarse texture that allows for easy growth. Does require a strict slow bisque cooling + cone 5 glaze fire or else we have noticed some blistering. 

  • Electric Brown. Honestly looks like straight chocolate when working it. Electric Brown is a stiffer + grittier clay body to throw with but allows for height when throwing.

 

White Clays 

  • B-mix. Everyone’s favorite white stoneware. Our everyday go-to for a really consistent throwing or handbuilding clay. We carry it with + without added grog. It fires to an off white 

  • WC16 Porcelain. All around, mid-tier rockstar white porcelain clay with a quality smoothness. 

  • Frost Porcelain. Throws like the softest butter and fires almost translucent with a silky finish. The starkest white clay body we carry. 


H I G H   F I R E  C L A Y

  • Soldate – 60. Super solid cone 10 stoneware that works well for handbuilding + throwing.
