STEAL!!! It's time for an exciting new SMC Steal! This SMC Steal is on a brand new SMC clay body, #111 Peppered Piedmont Stoneware! A warm, slightly-reddish tan color at cone 6 electric, Peppered Piedmont features a gorgeous and plentiful speckling throughout the body. This lovely clay throws and handbuilds with ease, giving enough stretch and strength for a variety of work styles, with fine grog that won't interfere with surface texture or smaller pieces. The variegated speck size will show through most glazes, but won't overwhelm the look of your work. This fantastic body glazes beautifully, slightly warming the overall tone. Peppered Piedmont bisques at cone 04, vitrifies at cone 6 and can fire up to cone 8 (oxidation or reduction). While #111 Peppered Piedmont will be permanently listed and sold at the same price as our #262 Grey Speck Stoneware, we are offering Peppered Piedmont's first batch as this week's Steal!
So here's your Steal: #111 Peppered Piedmont Stoneware, 25# bag only $11.00; or a 50# box only $20.00! While supplies last, limit ONE BOX per customer. Once we sell out this first batch, Peppered Piedmont will be run again and regularly available at its list price.
Don't forget! SMC will be CLOSED on Friday, November 4, & Saturday, November 5, for the Western North Carolina Pottery Festival and Clay Olympics in Dillsboro, NC.
