We currently have six throwing wheels. They are all commercial Brent models. We have two model CXC, three model C, and one model B.
We are currently using cone 6 clay on the wheels with Duncan glazes. I will be making my own glazes in the future.
Highwater – Little Loafers – Light grey porcelain-like stoneware cone 6. Very smooth plastic throwing clay. Throws like a stoneware but looks like a light grey porcelain. Top tile cone 6 oxidation with shrinkage 11% and absorption 1.9% plus. Bottom tile cone 6 reduction.
Highwater – Red Rock – A cone 6 oxidation clay that truly succeeds where others only try. It actually looks like a cone 10 reduction clay. A warm toasty color with a nice textured appearance and a spare use of speckling gives a very beautiful clay both unglazed and under your favorite glazes. Top tile is cone 4 in oxidation with shrinkage of 9% and absorption of 4.9%. Bottom tile cone 6 oxidation with shrinkage of 10% and absorption of <1%.
Standard – 553 – A very versatile throwing and handbuilding clay. Truely vitrified at cone 6. Cone 6 shrinkage 12% and absorption 2.7%.
We will be adding some Raku and Cone 10 clays in the future.
