Scarva Earthstone ES5 Original White Stoneware Clay From £2.89
ES5 Original White
Earthstone ES5 Original White was the very first Earthstone Clay. ES5 fires white, matures between 1200°-1290°C and is highly resistant to warping and cracking. The addition of a fine molochite means that ES5 Original White throws large pieces easily and responds well to both press moulding and slab building. ES5 Original White is highly regarded by professional potters and those making functional tableware because of its glaze fit and excellent thermal shock properties.

I used this Clay when I was on pottery course in one of the big studios in London and I liked it so much! It was easy to throw and hand build, all glazes in the studio looked gorgeous on this clay body which fires to a very light butter colour. It too me a while to find this clay again. I try my glazes on different clay bodies and on this particular clay my glazes look especially smooth and rush. Love it.

I was so happy to learn that shipping to the Highlands of Scotland was no more expensive than to anywhere else and it arrived within 3 days!
It's beautiful clay and I will order again in a flash!

Annabel Seymour from Ireland asks
This is quite high firing - what glazes would you use?
Steademan from United Kingdom asks
Is this a suitable clay for a 4 day woodfiring? Or would you recommend another?
Emma from United Kingdom asks
Will items be frost proof if the clay has vitrified? Thanks
Judith from United Kingdom asks
What temperature would you bisque this clay?
Lucy from United Kingdom asks
I bisque fired to 980 - is this a serious underfiring if I intend to glaze fire to 1230? Should I redo the bisque firing?
Mark from United Kingdom asks
If I use Spectrum glazes and fire to cone 5 (1196) with a 15 minute hold should that result in vitrification? Thanks
