I have been using Buff Stoneware in my cone 10 domestic-ware production for about a year. It is really easy to throw and trim and I have very few production losses. Although I have slowed down as Father Time catches up with me, I used to get through about six tonnes of clay a year. I reckon I know a bit about clay and this is the best one I have come across.

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.
