  1. Different clay bodies “mature” at different temperatures. By “mature” we mean fired to the point for which they were formulated. In general terms, the higher a clay body is designed to fire, the more vitreous it is. When a clay body is vitreous, it means that water cannot be absorbed into the clay when it is fired to maturity.
  2. Arbuckle Clays and Clay Bodies Page 1 of 7 CLAYS AND CLAY BODIES The Nature of Clay Clay is a product of the decomposition of granite rock. 75% of the earth's crust is made of ALUMINA and SILICA, two of the major constituents of clay. GraniteFile Size: KB.
  3. Another clay we offer is our MB Stoneware which is similar to Porcelain clay bodies but has a Stoneware quality. Finally, we offer a Number 2 and Number 3 Stoneware that are great midrange firing bodies one being terra cotta and the other cream respectively. Stoneware clay is a dense clay that is vitreous when fired to maturity.
  4. Yagi Studio / Getty Images. Technically, ceramics are those things made from materials which are permanently changed when heated. For example, clay has chemically bonded water in it which will cause it to slake down (disintegrate) when a dried clay object is put in water. Once heated (fired) to between 6F ( and C), the clay is converted to ceramic and will .

  6. Vitreous clay bodies can be made at any temperature, but are most often found at the higher firing ranges such as stoneware or porcelain. Adding lower melting ingredients lowers the maturation temperature of the clay body and decreases the potential for water absorption in the fired ware, while at the same time increasing firing shrinkage.
  7. But with clay bodies the added dimension of physical properties demands center stage. Unless you can test for them, you cannot even adjust a body let alone 'take it on tour'. For example, while you can usually exchange one kaolin for another in a glaze, such adjustments are likely to have considerable effects on a clay body's drying performance.
  8. Low-fire bodies are defined by when the temperature at which the clay body matures, generally considered to be between cones 09 and 02 (17degrees F or 9degrees C). Low-fire clays tend to have good workability and usually will .
