Excellent for wheel-throwing!
Blick's moist stoneware clay is a ready-to-use, de-aired, homogenous mixture that requires little or no wedging. Its smooth, plastic consistency makes it excellent for throwing as well as modeling, coiling, and slab building. This stoneware clay is ideal for making durable dishes, sculpture, planters, patio vases, and other utility and decorative ware.
Bisque fire to Cone 04 (1971°F, 1077°C). The firing range is Cone 5–10 (2205°F–2381°F). When fired at the recommended temperature of Cone 5 (2205°F), the hard, dense, semi-vitreous ware is buff colored with a shrinkage of 12% and absorption of 1.8%. At Cone 10 (2381°F), the very dense, vitreous ware is a soft gray color with a shrinkage of 13.2% and absorption of 0%.
A 50 lb (23 kg) carton consists of two 25 lb bricks, each in a poly storage bag, so any amount can be used as required and the rest stored for future use.
Note — This clay is AP non-toxic when moist.
Note — Any combination of clay, plaster, sand, and molding material totaling 50 lbs or more does not qualify for our free shipping offer.

I ordered clay for my daughter and had it shipped to her. She didn't receive it even though the tracking had it delivered. I called and Blick immediately sent out another package at no charge. Later discovered that I had put the wrong house # on the original order and I let them know that. Still no charge even though it was my error. Couldn't be more pleased!

I ordered about 20 boxes of this for my high school Ceramics/Sculpture classes. In my 15 years of teaching, I've never had so many problems with cracking and breaking as the pieces were drying and being fired. I will never order this clay again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this clay as a starter for trying out throwing pottery. I'm new to this process and concept, so I wanted to get something that was suitable for throwing and learning with. This has greatly helped with my learning.

best price on the web for great quality product!
from waubun, MN
The clay i bought from blick was about half the price of anywhere else i looked on the web.. it was a great deal, it came very quickly, and it's perfect for what making pottery with! we've been making cups, bowls, plates, and even figurines! we got exactly what we wanted and needed and at a great price! Thank you Dick Blick!
I don't fire clay so I don't use it to make bowls. I used it to build masks and head bases for silicone. So it worked perfectly for my needs.

I use this clay on my pottery wheel. It's pretty easy to work with. I have not fired a piece as of yet.
another big disappointment
from South Florida
I purchased a 50 lb. Box of this clay from a local blick store. Wow is this disappointing. It throws ok, but dries with terrible cracks. Waste of money and time. Will stick with laguna clay.

Extremely poor quality clay
By Clay Teacher
I wish I had read the reviews online first, rather than choosing this clay from the catalog. I've worked with many Blick brand products before and had great success, so I thought I'd try their brand of clay. What a mistake. It was purchased to create multiple bowls for a fundraiser event, and this clay has been extremely inconsistent to work with. For starters there seemed to be lots of microscopic air bubbles in the block of clay, and while throwing there would be larger, more annoying air bubbles present even though the clay was properly wedged. Then once the foot was trimmed and set to dry, several bowls developed cracks through the floor. Several more that appeared fine when they were bone dry developed cracks after being bisque fired. This clay has been a waste of time and money to work with.
