NOTE: Formula change 7/20/2022.

We were forced to reformulate our #3 Stoneware due to a talc mine closure in 2021. We are using our new talc-free formula in all boxes dated after 7/20/2022.

Other Information The "Glazes" section lists the compatible kinds of glazes for this clay, along with what cone you can fire to and still be in the correct temperature range for both this clay body and the particular glaze.
Warranty Because of the unavoidable variations in the natural material used to formulate clay as well as the uniqueness of each customers use, firing techniques and kiln environment, IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU TEST–FIRE BEFORE USING IN PRODUCTION.
