Report on Primo Clays SB15 sculpture body.

 

AT LAST, a reliable stoneware clay has been created by Paul and his team at Primo Clays.

 

After years of frustrating and dramatically unsatisfactory results with other clays I approached Primo Clays for a solution.

 

Paul and Bruce listened carefully and noted my requirements before going to work. Bruce prepared several blends of clay using a variety of grogs and supplied these for testing in my studio. After two rounds of testing we settled on blend 15 as the most promising and Primo Clays made a 1-tonne production trial.

 

 

The new body, Sculpture Body 15 (or SB15), is perfectly suited to my method of building and hollowing out [de-boning] my pieces. The fired clay texture accepts any colour or surface treatment I wish to finish the piece with …giving me so many choices.

 

It was a pleasure to let Paul take care of all the science - leaving me just to create my forms.
