Lovely clay to work with as described and it smells gorgeous. A pleasure to work with. Only thing is the first piece I made - a shallow wide dish shape for an upside down ceiling light - slumped badly. Because I wanted to glaze the rim and I wasn’t glazing inside I balanced the piece on 3 kiln stilts and it slumped and now looks like a 3 cornered hat. !! Absolutely no good for it’s purpose now. Very sad as loved working with it. I bisque fired to 1000 and then a medium
Fast stoneware glaze to 1222. Small pieces also in same load with same clay seem fine. Could it have been because I raised it on stilts and maybe I should have used 4 instead 3 so the slump wasn’t so triangular? Comment welcome because I want to try again. I usually only use low fired clay and so Could I fire this clay lower to say 1040 which is my usually low firing top temp?

I used to think the ES600 was a nice product, but now the color is darker and the consistency is not the same as before, unfortunately.
Yes I am disappointed and will stop buying it.
