Grogged Red Earthenware Clay 0-1.5mm (PF/CHM)


Regular price €16.15 Sale

Red earthenware clay with 20% coarse grog 0-1.5 mm (up to 12 Mesh). Ideal for big size pieces. The presence of grog confers to the clay a very interesting textured surface (not flat) which, in turn, provides a set of suitable properties for the design of pieces in complex drying situations, thus avoiding the creation of deformations and cracks. Available in extruded body (moist form), being suitable for shaping and modelling.
