I have been playing with different clay bodies over the past few months, and it’s been quite the experience. I’ve had some tragedies. But, I’m learning a bunch. The science of clay is fascinating. I may never really figure it out, but I can certainly learn, take notes, and keep trying new things.
What I know for sure – I’ve fallen in love with speckled brown clay. Completely in love.
I bought my potter’s wheel used off Craigslist. When I went to pick it up, the guy who sold it to me (Adam) just kind of pushed a box of clay my direction and asked me if I wanted it. So, of course, I took it. Free clay? YES, PLEASE!
Little did I know that bag of clay was speckled brown clay. I just kind of started playing with it, and out of the kiln came gorgeous speckled goodness.
It’s one of my very favorite things.
