RedArt Clay 

Issenberg redart ash glaze 3RedArt is a red burning sedimentary clay with a firing range of cone 04 to cone 4 when used as the primary clay body component. RedArt clay offers excellent plasticity straight out of the bag and can be used as 100% of a red burning earthenware body. Small additions (10-15%) of ball clay or GoldArt will enhance the plasticity for work on the whell without sacrificing plasticity. 


GoldArt Clay 

GoldArt is a stoneware clay burning to a very light buff color at cone 06 and to a darker cream color at cone 8 and light grey at cone 10. Used as a primary component of stoneware bodies in the cone 6-10 range, it lends plasticity to the body while the small amount of iron and titania lead to pleasing orange, grey, red and other color effects in reduction and/or wood firing atmospheres. 

Salt Lick Stoneware Clay 

Salt Lick Stoneware has many of the same properties as GoldArt but has lower alumina and higher potassia which helps lower the maturing temperature without sacrificing plasticity. Roseville Stoneware Clay burns to a darker cream color than either GoldArt or Salt Lick and matures at cone 6-8. Excellent as the primary component of salt and soda fired bodies.
