Pots in Production

We used many different clay bodies during the symposium, one of which was a local iron rich clay mined in nearby Perry County. It was sourced from Logan Clay, one of the last remaining ceramic sewer pipe factories in the country. This clay has a greenish cast when raw, and fires to a nice chocolatey brown with large iron burnouts. We tried three different recipes that used this clay, with excellent results.
