This de-aired moist stoneware clay is formulated from choice clays for plasticity and whiteness, plus fire-clay to give it additional body. Amaco No. 38 White Stoneware Clay contains no grog, yet has the strength required for throwing large pieces.
Bisque fire to Cone 04 (1971°F, 1077°C). The firing range is Cone 5–10 (2205°–2381°F), and the recommended glaze firing is Cone 10 (2381°F). At Cone 5 (2205°F), shrinkage is 13% and absorption is 7%. At Cone 10 (2381°F), shrinkage is 15%, absorption is 1.4%, and the clay fires white in oxidation and gray in reduction, both delicately peppered with darker gray spots.
A 50 lb 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 order this high fire clay for clay workshops. It is great for hand-building methods, fires to a bright white, and accepts underglazes well. It is a favorite among the teachers here!
Really wet clay
I have ordered this clay several times and have been very satisfied. This time. the clay that arrived was extremely wet, soft and mushy. I had to let it dry with the plastic bag open before I could use it. Consequently, the shrinkage was excessive. Because of my prior experiences, I would order it again, hoping that to not get a wet product.

Good for throwing

This is an excellent stoneware that fires to a very slightly warm white. No trouble at all with a variety of slabbing and hand-built techniques. It does shrink up quite a bit, so keep that in mind. No problem with cracking or breaking, but with think pieces, let them dry slowly. Looks great with the Amaco Potters' Choice glazes.
