We went down to StarWorks for some of the clay which had been donated by Takuro for the upcoming group firing on the 4th of April about a week or so ago.
Realizing we would not have time for another gas firing for us- we decided to give this new Starwhite clay body a go.
What a great throwing body it has turned out to be.
We both enjoyed throwing it and have made most of the pots we want to have for the firing.
As I was unloading the bisque kiln I look at the 4 different clay bodies- maybe too many? Maybe not.
we are excited to also try out our glazes on the Star clay as well.
It would be great if we can use it for the gas kiln as well.
The different clay bodies:
Pinkish one- Standard 153
Red one- Highwater red stone or is it red rock I mix them up
White clay-Highwater Loafers glory and new Star white.
