Peter Meanley has been working with clay for 45 years and making salt-glaze vessels for the past 25. In 1999 he was awarded a degree of Ph.D. for his research into the nature of salt-glaze. Using Peter's experience combined with Scarva/Valentine Clays laboratories we have developed a new salt-glaze body which gives excellent fired results. Containing four different ball clays with the addition of silica and red iron we believe we have achieved the perfect relationship between the alumina, silica and red iron in the body which is the most important factor in producing a good salt-glaze body. The clay gives a good orange peel effect and a warm fired colour. Ideal for press-moulding, extruding and throwing.
