This product is unavailable

Traditional Red Earthernware clay. It is high quality and polyvalent clay, very popular for its fineness and excellent plasticity.

Its coefficients of thermal expansion are ideal for standard pottery glazes, in both single and twice firing processes.

Incredible results in reducing atmosphere can be obtained (metallic reflection technique).

Available in extruded body (moist form), being suitable for wheel-throwing, shaping and modelling.
