This clay body is best suited for decorative pieces large or small (vases, bowls, planters, etc.). Not nearly as good as H550 for use in functional ware. Because of it’s high percentage of shrinkage, care and attention during drying are necessary for larger pieces, especially flat plates, shallow bowls, and sculptural ware.
