just ran an article about weather proofing for an outdoor tile
The clay body used was Red Earthenware Clay ^06-02
Absorption: 5.3% at C/06, 1% at C/02 see:
The installation is in Brooklyn NY.... land of hot summers & bitter
I'm just curious because this is lowfire and unless my memory fails me
discussions on Clayart re murals discourage using low fire claybodies
The absorption rate is only 1% but is it vitrified and will it really
hold up to
repeated weather conditions like high fire clay bodies?
Someone set me straight please.
