Scarva Earthstone Professional PF700G Porcelain White Stoneware Grogged From £24.95
Firing Temp 1220-1300ºC
For some time now we have been asked by our customers to develop a superior, white, porcelain-like clay which is more reliable and easier to work with than a porcelain body. Porcelain bodies are harder to work with due to their lack of plasticity and are more likely to crack, warp or shrink than stoneware bodies. PF700G uses the same base as PF700 but has the addition of 7% grog which makes it ideal for making larger pieces. PF700G is not as translucent as porcelain, unless in very thin cross-sections at high temperatures. It is however, just as white, has all the qualities of a good stoneware body and produces porcelain-like results at a lower cost. PF 700G has been formulated from the purest, highest quality white clays to give a porcelain-like appearance but without the difficulties that working with porcelain can create.

I am so disappointed with this clay. I bought it because I want to handbuild complex forms with a clay that it as white as porcelain. It's like trying to work with shortcrust pastry - cracks all the time, almost no plasticity. Honestly, I think porcelain would be easier. I haven't fired it yet, so can't comment on its whiteness (in its wet state it's a rather unattractive beige, but that's no indication), but I won't be using the rest of the bag because it's such a pig to work with. A big waste of money.

I would like to know if this clay is suitable for raku firing.. as it is heavily grogged, it seems to be more rugged than the Ashraf Hanna Raku clay, I wondered if it was suitable, it fires really nice in a Bisque.
