We’re very excited about the newest clay body coming to us from Kansas Clay (manufacturer of Flint Hills Clay Bodies). In cooperation with Simon Levin, Kansas Clay recently added TWO incredible bodies specifically designed for woodfiring into their lineup. Delicious Irony is a rich deep burgundy/dark chocolate colored, silky-smooth body. True Grit is a crunchy, substantial and stout sculpture body that fires out a beautiful yellow-orange flash with undertones and shades of brown.
The sample pieces seen here were made by Antonio Martinez and fired in KU’s reduction-cooled wood kiln. In the video below, the examples on the left are delicious irony and on the right are True Grit examples. We will be adding these to our production schedule and both bodies should be available within a month. We are taking pre-orders now!
