My sister in law lives in new mexico and dug out and processed some clay. It's got a lot of grit so I do not plan to throw with it. I am told it is "low fire". (she said someone who uses it mentioned 1700 degrees. She has pit fired it with her school. (she is a waldorf school teacher and they teach the kids things like this)
I got a 3 lb ball of it. Does anyone have suggestions for me who has worked with clay containing lots of mica? It's very pretty /sparkly clay.
