Clays

Boxes of Axner Premium Clay Our customers frequently tell us...
"Axner Clay is the best I have ever used!"
Here are the reasons why...


Axner Clay Formulations
Axner Premium Clays are formulated to work well for both the potter and the end user. The potter will find that our wide range of bodies handle well and form easily. They are made from high quality ingredients that come from mines that provide consistency. Our formulations have been well tested for many years by thousands and thousands of potters. The end user will find the wares made with Axner Premium Clay to be durable and resistant to rigors such as having a casserole go from the refrigerator to the oven. Visually, Axner Premium Clays come in a stunning range of colors and textures. Our clays have been tested in many ways, such as with a dilatometer, to assure that they will not be subject to the many faults that plague poorly formulated clay bodies. And we continually retest our clays, over and over again to assure that you will always have the very best quality.

WE TEST EVERY BATCH!
A sample of every batch of clay that comes out of our mixer goes to our testing lab, from which test bars are made. The bars are stamped and fired. We measure the shrinkage of the test bars. We boil the tests bars and weigh them prior and after in order to measure the water absorption. And we visually inspect the test bars. And then we send the results off to our clay consultant for further review. In this way, we assure that every batch of clay is of the same consistent quality as it always has been. Any batch that does not yield good test results gets trashed!

Our Commitment to You
Our goal is to offer you the best performing, highest quality, and most consistent clay that you will be able to find anywhere. The procedures and people that we have put in place makes this goal highly achievable and we are ready to prove it to you.
