Description
The Bodmer L12 clay is produced from potter clay G by adding 12% leucophyllite. The result: a thinning out, higher stability while spinning, easier drying, smaller expansion after wetting, which leads to a lower risk of hairline cracking in the glaze. Incidentally, the same excellent properties as in the G-clay apply. After the first firing the silvery shiny leucophyllite cells are faintly visible. The clay is highly recommended for spinning on the potter's wheel.

Bodmer pottery clay G, H, L 12
The pottery clay produced by us are extremely plastic and can be processed very well. The careful wet treatment in the slurry process guarantees consistent quality. The natural properties of the raw clays are thus preserved. Bodmer pottery clays are excellent glaze carriers thanks to their ideal lime content. The Bodmer slips and glazes for temperatures up to 1020 ° C are tuned to these clays and guarantee perfect ceramic products.


Absolutely ultimate danger of frost
Pottery clay is sensitive to frost. Should it freeze, let it unfreeze in packaging and leave it in the packaging for some time. Then knead well before use.
