Hi to all,
I am trying out some new, locally made clays, for throwing on the wheel.
while pulling the clay up, there seem to be tears in the wall, or sometimes these kind of cracks, but not from dryness - it's as if the clay is just separating.
My thought was that there is a lack of plasticity in the clay body! But I got the recipe for one of the clays, and it has altogether almost 80% plastic ingredients. That seems like a lot to me...
I would love for any advice on this matter:
First of all - is the problem really lack of plasticity?
What might be the cause of this problem?
What can I try in search of the solution?
Thank you for sharing your wisdom,
