Scarva Earthstone ES5 Original White Stoneware Clay From £19.50
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 find this clay absolutely brilliant for hand building, coils and slabs, if handled well and dried slowly it will accept a lot of manipulation and it works really well with brush on glaze too. Also its super easy to recycle.

At what temperature does ES5 vitrify? Many thanks - Maria
Annabel Seymour de Ireland asks
This is quite high firing - what glazes would you use?
Steademan de United Kingdom asks
Is this a suitable clay for a 4 day woodfiring? Or would you recommend another?

Will items be frost proof if the clay has vitrified? Thanks
Judith de United Kingdom asks
What temperature would you bisque this clay?
Lucy de 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 de 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

Hello, What are the dimensions of a 12.5kg bag of clay?

Do you know the shrinkage ratio for this clay? (my final fire temp is 1250)
Rufus de United Kingdom asks
I frequently use clays (including ES5) as part of my glaze recipes; I have recently started using glaze chemistry calculation software to refine these - these require chemical analyses for all ingredients. Are chemical analyses available for your clay bodies?
Alice de United Kingdom asks
Hi, where is ES5 mined?
Christina de United Kingdom asks
Could you tell me if this clay is suitable for oven dishes please.If so would any food safe stoneware glaze be suitable for use in the oven?
Nicola de United Kingdom asks
Hi, can you tell me please how a reduction firing (mid to heavy reduction) will affect the es5 clay colour? Thank you, Nicola
Claire de Ireland asks
Hi, I am bisque firing to 998 Celsius using ES5 and glaze firing to between 1060 and 1080 but the glaze keeps cracking. Should I be glaze firing to 1200 to 1290 as stated above? Many thanks.
beth de Ireland asks
I’ve been using scarva earthstone es10 and bisque firing that to 1100 and glaze firing to 1040 celsius will that work with this clay??
Jaleel de Kuwait asks
I use amaco potters choice glazes. If I fire to 1185C and hold for 25min, will this vitrify?
