Paper Clay

CATEGORY: Paper clays

METHOD: Modelling, Hand building, Pouring

COLOUR: White

TEXTURE: Smooth

FIRING RANGE: 900°c - 1280°c

Very white, smooth Porcelain. Suitable for small - medium handbuilt work with medium translucency at 1280°C.

Contains finely chopped fibres of flax and Cellulose, which produces very forgiving clay bodies that offers today’s potter the widest possible range of making options. FLAXpaperCLAY gives the clay strength and flexibility while remaining lightweight. The clay has virtually no mould growth unlike all other paper clay bodies and will accept a range of firing types, Raku, Oxidation, Reduction, Salt and Soda. The fibres create strong but flexible internal structure in the clay and creates a ‘capillary system’ that transfers moisture easily and evenly throughout the clay. Greenware re-wets easily and allows the potter to re-work alter and add new clay at any stage of dryness. It is possible with FLAXpaperCLAY body to build an armature and allow it to dry as a support sculpture that need not be removed for firing. Greenware even bone dry is unbelievably strong and easy to handle and transport if necessary. It allows the potter to be more of an artist and less of a technician.
