What Clay is This?

Recommended Posts

This was in a batch of pottery supplies I got off Craigslist. There was no description on the bag. There is a lot of grog in it; more than normal to my experience so the previous potter may have added some. I went ahead and threw it just to use it up but I can't make up my mind what cones to bisque and then fire it to.

Anyone want to take a guess at what body this is and it's firing ranges? Other than multiple, different cone firings of samples is there a method of testing?

Have you tried contacting the seller, to see if they can provide any info ?

What are the other "supplies" in the lot ?  Perhaps there are clues about firing temperature in some of the other materials.

If there are glazes-  What cone are they labeled for ?   Is there other clay that is marked ?
