Hooray, my clay has arrived. I ordered 100kg of ash white stoneware from Ceramatech. (That's 8 bags so no pallet required for me). Whilst pondering what to get I did start thinking about where clay comes from and whether it is possible to source London clay... In the end I decided to order some more of what I had started working with over the summer as it seemed nice and smooth and very white. And it looked like it could take ages to source local stuff and I wanted to get on.

At the same time I also ordered some supplies for glazing - when I get to that; potash feldspar, white dolomite, quartz, tin oxide, black iron oxide and manganese dioxide. For starters I am planning a matt black and a satin white.
