We know this one’s a store favorite! Speckled Buff is used widely across the throwing and sculpting spectrum. A consistent, stable clay, Speckled Buff tends to give good results across the board. Speckled buff is smooth-textured but has an extra bit of “umph” to it. It has a low sand and grog content. A mature cone 5 firing will reveal fine black speckles generally visible through glaze and clearly presented on unglazed surfaces. Try green or blue glazes with this one, they tend to look beautiful against its Southwest tan coloring! Grab a bag today! Check out this picture of Speckled Buff on Laguna's Facebook page
