I’ve been using this clay to throw with for over a year now and I love it. It’s very smooth. I also use it to mix with Nano stains for coloured slip and so far the colours seem true. It turns really well and burnishes really well too. I fire it to 1260 in an electric kiln and it comes out a little bit darker than ES10. A nice toasted finish with the faintest speckle.
I have yet to throw anything large with it but I’m not sure it’ll hold up for a big salad bowl. I rolled it out to 5/6mm for a tile and it warped a lot, which is what I wanted but doesn’t bode well for a large thrown piece.
Still, a nice clay at a great price.

I tried a bag of this as practice throwing clay. I usually hand build but have recently acquired a wheel. It's great clay. Forgiving to throw, smooth, can be fired using earthenware or stoneware or really any glaze. I've even burnished it up and raku fired it. It's my new favourite.
