I have been using porcelain all year, and it took a while to realize I wanted a darker clay body. Thats when i found a recipe for chocolate porcelain while i was at school. It was great while it lasted, but I've officially finished up the last of it! Since it's not a clay that's readily available by my suppliers, I decided to give earthenware a go.
And I love it!
It's warmer, cozier, and definitely more my vibe. I'm surprised it took me so long to try it out! Now that I know my love for red clay is real, I'll be trying a few different ones available to me. What's really cool is most of the red clays around here are locally sourced.
Here's to red clay adventures!
