About the materials
I use Stoneware clay , this is a ceramic clay which requires to be fired in a pottery kiln to temperatures of 1200 degrees. This is very important as ceramic clays are the same you use in your everyday table ware such as mugs , cups , plates etc.
I have my own pottery kiln which is use.
- I use scarva stoneware clay
- scarva lead free transparent glaze
- amaco underglaze
pottery goes through different stages:
bisque firing to 1060 degrees
underglazing ( adding colours)
a glaze firing to 1200 degrees ( can only be achieved in a kiln)
I Always recommend local pottery studios and attend some classes if you’re wishing to learn to make durable ,SAFE items.
SAFETY IS SO IMPORTANT I cannot stress enough how important it is to learn from a PROFESSIONAL. I am not a teacher I just simply run my own business
my items are NOT air dry clay. Air dry clay is a hobby clay , which anyone can use as it simply dries in the air and does not cure. Air dry clay cannot come into contact with food , water or any other Materials as it is NOT FOOD or WATER SAFE and will crumble and cause issues.
