CLAY.

From potters clay bodies, to children’s clays, to modeling/sculpture clays, AMACO® boasts a wide variety of Art and Craft products.

Low Fire Clay

We manufacture Low Fire AP labeled ceramic clays in a variety of formulas for classroom and studio use. Please read the details for each AMACO clay to determine which is most suitable for sculpture, wheel throwing, or multi-purpose. Our glazes are specifically formulated to give excellent results on AMACO clays. Each glaze has a different effect, depending on the clay body you select. (Firing other brands of glazes on our clays will offer successful results as well but may vary in appearance.).
