3C White Ball Clay


3C is our whitest burning and most refractory fireclay. It is plastic and a main ingredient in our H441G sculpture body.

3C stockpile at the Plainsman plant site.


The lignite that imparts the black raw color burns away during firing. 3C does contain impurities that produce specking during firing, especially in reduction. We do not grind bodies containing it any finer than 42 mesh. And we do not supply 3C in powdered form in any finer size than 42 mesh. However, if you are a pottery you could remove larger particle by wet processing and screening.

3C fired test bars. From upper and lower section of the seam. Cone 10R top and 10 down to 8 below that.
