Starting to test the new clays. I began by making 4 similar shapes out of each clay and recording observations on working properties for each one. Some are very close to being good to use by themselves, and others need to be blended to be much use for making work with. It’s always refreshing to work clays straight from the ground in their unblended form. #newclays #wildclay #ceramics #woodfire

Fellow maker and wild clay enthusiast @zach_sierke in front of a cliff of clay at Stedman’s Landing in Fairhope, Alabama. I had an absolute fantastic day with Zach touring old kiln sites, pulling pre-civil war shards out of creeks, and exploring the rich and diverse clay deposits of the bay. #zachsierke #wildclay #adventure #community #ceramics #claymountain
