152-1115 Staffordshire Stoneware (contains slight natural fleck)
Staffordshire Stoneware is a recent modification of our highly successful Pyropot recipe.
Staffordshire Stoneware is a blend of ball clays, fireclays and red marls. The high ball clay content imparts exceptional plasticity, making it an ideal throwing body. Fireclay imparts refractory qualities whilst red marls give this body its characteristic subtle iron fleck.
The recipe uses a proportion of fireclay sourced from our own mine in South Staffordshire.
Firing to warm buff colour, it is particularly suitable for domestic ware.
Recommended firing range 1200-1300C
Suitable for oven to tableware.
"I have been using Staffordshire Stoneware to make the Clay College mugs commissioned by Potclays for their 85th anniversary. I love it, it throws like a dream" Kevin Millward, June 2017
