33 Ilmenite Stoneware Clay by Keane
33 Ilmenite Stoneware Clay by Keane is a fave amongst throwers and handbuilders alike.
Smooth enough not to create a beautiful finish, but with enough backbone no to fall over at that crucial moment.
Fires to a grey buff with a nice ilmenite speckle at cone 8/9, with a really low absorption, making it an ideal choice for domesticware.
Before we moved to a mid-fire studio, this was our clay of choice.
Absorption 0.6% at 1280
Shrinkage 13.4% at 1280
