Did you know that clay shrinks as it dries and goes through each firing???
This particular clay (that I adore) has a rather shocking 14% shrinkage rate… which means a lot of math and forward planning to get the right sized mug.
Not the worst thing in the world, but to this math-impaired person it creates some headaches… quite literally.
It’s worth it though ❤
Look at that gorgeous, rich clay coming through the glaze… it’s worth every, math headache, every, single one.
