Don't let the name fool you: Klamath Yellow looks bright yellow when wet, but fires to a lush red/orange color. It's a mid range stoneware clay body, great for throwing and (like all Seattle Pottery Supply Klamath clays), works well for pretty much every project you have in mind.

We particularly like it for throwing, handbuilding, dinnerware, flower pots, jiggering/jollying, and pressing. You'll find other stuff it's great for too, we're sure.

25 lb. block.

To use: wedge wet clay, work as preferred, and fire to ∆ 5. Use with mid-range glazes.

*Please be aware that natural impurities may occasionally occur in our clay! Our clays are made with natural minerals, mined from the earth. In some rare cases, natural impurities, or ribbons of other minerals, are mixed in with the raw materials provided by our suppliers. This can lead to clays that don’t perform the way they are supposed to. If you have any questions about a particular clay body, please reach out to info@seattlepotterysupply.com.
