Starry Night is Night Clay with an ilmenite grog. This cone 5-6 body fires a dark black in oxidation with shining speckles from the ilmenite. It is designed with Navajo Wheel 35 in mind. One will find the same great plasticity that makes Navajo Wheel a great body to work with, combined with a fine grog that provides tooth without being too coarse to throw.
To get bright colors we recommend using a white engobe on the greenware. This will allow brightly colored glazes to shine and reduce pin holing (See photos of mugs).
*Priced per 50lbs box
