Laguna also makes a Refractory Body clay.

I've used this for saggars successfully. It is a little rough on the hands, but it's designed as a refractory clay.

Low expansion, semi-coarse high temperature body for refractory use. Best refractory quality when fired at Cone 13.

...much to do around the studio besides the actual creative parts of doing ceramics.

If I had a steady schedule (instead of seasonal) I would bring on an apprentice/assistant.

There is clay prep, kneading and weighing, glazes to mix, and the contiual clean-up to do.

Had I noting but the time to do the creating part, I'd be a much less tired clay worker.


I'd pay the legal minimum wage on up> depending on actual amount of time spent at the studio, and the dedication and age of the assist.

Trade for studio/kiln time would be a bartering chip as well.

Seriously thinking about looking for the right person in the spring.
