Cone 5 - Cone 10
White Stoneware No. 38 is an excellent body for throwing, slab rolling and hand modeling. This formula has greatly improved plasticity, a better fit at Cone 5 and makes an excellent Cone 10 stoneware.
38-M is a white stoneware clay that has some characteristics of porcelain. When applying handles or connecting pieces, expect some shrinkage; we recommend connecting separate pieces together when each piece has similar moisture.
38-M is formulated from choice clays for plasticity and whiteness, plus fire-clay to give it more body. It contains no grog, yet it has the strength for throwing large pieces.
Excellent clay for throwing, slab rolling, and hand modeling. Good at Cone 5 and perfect for creating Cone 10 stoneware.
