Our most popular mid-range clay body, Venus is a highly plastic smooth midrange white stoneware with EXTRA FINE grog so smooth you can't even feel it.
Superb for wheel thrown functional ware. Also great for slab built small & medium size work. Fires bone white, with great density & strength. (Venus is often used in both low and high fire as well)
In June 2010 Clay Planet had a textured slab handbuilding workshop with over 20 students who all used this clay. All students made thin slab-built wares. The wares were dried overnight uncovered without a single handle falling off, or a single piece cracking. We are all happy and amazed by how well Venus white does as a versatile clay.
