Gunflint Stoneware!!

Our new clay body is ready for you! This stoneware is smooth on the wheel, and is also wonderful for hand building. The iron in the clay body interacts with glazes in surprising and beautiful ways, and the richness of the bare surface adds majesty to any foot rings or unglazed elements. Come by and pick up a bag today to try for yourself!
