EM-709 Nan Smith's Sculpture Clay
Axner Brand Clay Body

EM‑709
Nan Smith's Sculpture Clay

Certified Nontoxic, Conforms to ASTM C-1023/D-4236
Great for large works and tiles. This clay is unusually strong in the green state and in the fired state. It has a warm beige colored tone when fired. It has a relatively low shrinkage (about 8%). It is grainy to the touch, but smoothes nicely. It re-wets easily and will not crack due to uneven wall thicknesses. Nan Smith is a well know artist and professor at the University of Florida and she has shared her formula with us.
