I have still to see the finished fired product, so I cannot comment fully. However, I have built a 60cm coil-pot using ES180, it was absolutely superb for the job. Being so heavily grogged, it was strong and held its shape superbly. When rolling the coils, it almost seemed to help me! I'm definitely going to use this clay again for hand-building.

Hi, I've read that you should mix the clay when building a clay oven. 1 part clay to 2 parts sand, is this applicable with this clay?

Hi, Is this clay body food safe, allowing it to be made for cups and bowls? Thank you.
Gareth from United Kingdom asks
Hello, I've been looking at this product to make the main part of my outdoor pizza oven. I have made a fibre glass mold of the dome and the idea that I have is to press the clay against the mold to get the shape. My question is, Will this clay air dry to a degree to allow it to be removed from the mold and retain it's shape? Thanks

How much would I need to make a typical size pizza oven?
Maria from United Kingdom asks
Hi, When you say this body has a very low shrinkage rate can you give me an idea of what this is? even just roughly. I'm creating a mixed media project from fused glass and ceramics so I need a clay with the smallest amount of shrinkage possible so that they will fit together once made seperately. many thanks.
