Here's two from Luke Sheets, grad student at BGSU. Both give a wide
range of color in most parts of the kiln. We fire pretty hot, usually: Cone
12 about half way down. He often wads pots on their sides and these clays
seem to take it without flattening in they're not too thin. Test with your
glazes for fit.
20 Helmer Kaolin
12 OM#4 Ball Clay
12 XX Sagger Clay
20 NC-4 Feldspar
1.5% Absorption at Cone 10
15 Tile #6
25 G-200 spar
8% dry shrinkage
15% at Cone 10
This one really develops nice slate blues when buried in the coal bed.
