    Terracotta Earthenware Clay

    Traditional terracotta (calcareous) earthenware clay body. Its calcium carbonate content (19%) allows displaying an interesting palette of colors, from pink to straw colors, depending on the firing temperature and atmosphere. Its coefficient of thermal expansion is ideal for standard pottery glazes, in both single and twice firing processes. Its high resistance to frost and environmental degradation make it ideal for pieces exposed outdoors (garden pots, tiles, etc.). Available in extruded body (moist form), being suitable for wheel-throwing, shaping and modeling.
