Macs Mud Southern Red Clay is made to a very similar recipe as the now historical Abbots Red. This clay uses a very fine sand to add tooth and strength sufficient for both throwing and hand building applications (both large and small). The clay stands up well and alters forgivingly. Fires to a classic terracotta red. Made from 100% NZ clay.
