STARworks Clay Factory is Completed
We have finally completed our clay factory set up and have started mixing clay. This allows us to process raw local, North Carolina clay and blend it into ready-to-use pottery clay.
In our clay mixing process, we mix the clay with sufficient water to completely hydrate it, and send the slip through a magnetic separator to remove metals. Then we use a screen to remove big stones and other objects from the clay slip, and send it to the filter press to remove excess water. After that, we move the clay to our heavy-duty pug mill to mix and de-air.
We are very excited to start processing ready-to-use blended clays that are made with raw local NC clay. Details will be announced very soon. Please try and experience the beauty of the natural NC local clay.
