Vulcan Black Stoneware is unlike any other on the market, providing an unusual intense brown-black colour when fired in an oxidising atmosphere. In a reducing atmosphere a metallic finish with shades of blue is obtained (Note: Too-heavy reduction will cause bloating).

Containing 40% fine grog (up to 80 mesh), Vulcan Black Stoneware Fine has been formulated for artistic ceramics. It behaves excellently during drying/firing and its high plasticity makes it ideal for modelling. It is widely used for murals and sculpture and is ideal for detailed work. Supplied in a 12.5kg bag.

Vulcan Black Stoneware (Fine) 164-VUF is suitable for tableware (food-safe), according to ISO 6486 when fired as recommended (less than 3% porosity).
