Clay Selection Guide & General Clay Information

There are numerous decisions to make in selecting the right clay - decisions which are usually aided by experimentation and trial-and-error. However, we have a number of charts and additional information that will help you in selecting a clay, which offers the right temperature and color for oxidation or reduction, the right texture amount, if any, of grog or sand), the right firmness, and the right shrinkage and absorption. Some or all of these factors may be important to you and the project you are creating. If you need additional help in making your decision, call our technical support group at 800-4-LAGUNA or .
