Stoneware Paper Clay has been designed for artistic ceramics and sculpture works. Thanks to its great plasticity it is ideal for both throwing and modelling and especially suitable for producing impossible shapes that are difficult to dry. The presence of paper fibres within the body avoids the formation of cracks and problems with deformation. This clay creates the opportunity for a surprising and rewarding means of artistic expression. Stoneware Paper Clay is finely grogged (0-0.2mm) and odourless when fired (1100-12600C). Available as an extruded, moist body in bags of 12.5kg.
