Clay from the earth, water, air, and fire are the essential elements associated with the creation and permanence of ceramic forms. Each element is dependent on the other in the making and finishing processes.
For the last 10 years I have been involved with the construction of two basic techniques, slip casting and extrusion from a de-airing self made pug. The slip cast clay is a basic earthenware with a firing range up to 1200 centigrade. The extruded clay body is a high fired stoneware body of 50 kilos of Hyplas 71, 25 kilos Grolleg China Clay, 4 kilos flint, and 4 kilos(120 mesh) Molochite. I mix this clay recipe in old dough mixer and then de- aired through the pug.
