The grogless No.480 Stoneware has a smooth surface and superior plasticity. This clay is ideal for throwing and hand-modeling, but not as suitable for sculpture as No.48. When fired to cone 5-6, it is a warm buff color that is peppered with dark speckles. At lower temperatures, the clay is a little lighter and less vitreous. Light matte and transparent glazes allow the dark specks in the clay to show for a peppered effect. Firing range is Cone 5-10 with best results at Cone 5. Comes in a container in two 25 lb plastic bags.

Great Clay for Throwing

I love this clay for throwing! I like how soft it is compared to some of the other stoneware clays that I have used. It looks great fired to cone 6. The speckles are very prominent and can be seen through some of the glazes I use.

Amaco High Fire Stoneware Clay 480

I personally really like this clay and the peppered effect it has which shows through on a clear glaze. I have found it good for throwing, also easy to extrude as it is nice and moist coming out of the bag. So far I haven't had any disappointments with it before and after firing. As I don't always want a peppered effect its not good for everything but definitely one I want to keep in stock.

Decent Clay for throwing

It's not the best clay but not poor. Some of the clays from WalMart are a little too soft and just require a little more kneading and some are too hard...dropping those on the ground a few times will usually loosen them up. I guess sometimes they are sitting in stock for a long time.

looks good on paper, but......

I purchased this clay thinking it would be great for a hand building project I planned for several of my classes. I was looking for a clay that would bisque fire to a look that would not need the glazing process but would have the look desired for our ceramic sculptures at the bisque fired stage. Unfortunately, even after following the required cone fire temperature (and trying other temps on additional firings) it all fired to the same look - a pinkish, salmony color with only infrequent, very small areas on occasional pieces, having a glimpse of what is pictured in the catalogue. I was told by the folks at Amaco (when I called with my concerns) that it would only get this look if glazed with a white glaze which makes no sense to me and is not what is pictured.
