 MB White Stoneware 

$15.95 

Cone 6-10. Extremely smooth, white, plastic mid-range clay body. It is vitreous and porcelain-like when fired at cone 6. MB stoneware is designed primarily for oxidation firing, producing a white color in oxidation and gray in reduction.
 No. 1 w/Manganese 

$14.00 

Cone 6-9. Adding a small percentage of granular manganese to the stoneware gives a dark speckling in the body and through the glaze. As manganese is gaseous at higher temperatures, we also recommend a lighter reducing atmosphere and slightly cooler firing to avoid trapped surface gases that can cause bubbling.
