Designed as a replacement for (and evolution of!) our popular Sea Mix 5 clay, Sea Mix 6 is an extremely workable mid-range stoneware that is so easy to use it makes you feel like a pro. An excellent clay body with all of Sea Mix 5’s superpowers, it’s great for throwing and sculpting alike, and fires to a soft off-white. Makes your mid-range glazes pop. Ideal for throwing, hand building, jiggering, pressing, and dinnerware… just for starters.

A quick note on what is new about the (new) Sea Mix 6

We’ve tweaked the Sea Mix 6 formulation because of the G200 Feldspar shortage. For those of you who have already tried—and loved—it, never fear! We’ve found a chemically identical feldspar through another source, and after many rounds of testing, we like the (new) new Sea Mix 6 even more than before!

Want more detail? You can read all about the new Sea Mix 6 clay and the Custer Feldspar and G200 Feldspar shortages.

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
