*   Following the issues with talc from the RT Vanderbilt mines in Upstate New York, the State of Connecticut ordered all clays sold for use by school age children in Connecticut be formulated with NO TALC regardless of the source and/or type of the talc.  Standard S-105NT was formulated specifically to meet the critical standards set forth by the State of Connecticut.

 

    Dogwood Ceramic Supply switched to Talc Free clay formulations as part of our effort to insure that only the highest quality NON-Toxic products are sold to schools, regardless of their location.  Standard Ceramic Supply continues to manufacture a talc based clay... it is labeled S105 and lacks the NT or NTG designations.  When purchasing Standard clays for the classroom always make sure the NT (or NTG) code is clearly printed on the packaging box.  If buying another brand of clay always insist on the No-Talc formulas are being purchased.

Standard S112 Specked Brown Stoneware Clay


Standard S112 Speckled Brown Stoneware Clay (Cone 4-6)


   Standard Clay's S-112 Speckled Brown Stoneware Clay is a lightly textured, plastic clay with 4% fine grog that is excellent for throwing and modeling.  The addition of granular manganese gives a speckled surface to the Speckled Brown Stoneware Clay that is attractive both glazed and unglazed.  At Cone 4 in oxidation, shown on the left, the color is a light warm brown with light manganese speckling.  As shown on the right, the color becomes less warm, and deepens and darkens to nearly a medium brown, with more pronounced speckling as the clay approaches Cone 6.  As manganese is gaseous at higher temperatures use a slower firing and/or modest amount of hold to avoid trapped surface gases that can cause glaze bubbling.  Good results may also be expected in reduction firings.


   Standard Ceramic Supply's S-112 Speckled Brown Stoneware Clay is used by professional potters, schools, colleges and universities across North America and historically is Dogwood Ceramic Supply's absolute best selling clay.  Standard S-112 Clay is extremely popular with Spectrum's 1100 Series Stoneware Glazes.

Standard S211 Hazelnut Stoneware Clay


Standard S211 Hazelnut Stoneware Clay (Cone 6)


   Standard Clay's S-211 Hazelnut Stoneware Clay is one of the newest clays introduced by Standard. The S-211 Hazelnut is a nice plastic clay that is great for throwing and handbuilding.  At Cone 6 oxidation, it is a warm rich brown color usually associated with reduction firing. The noticeable speckling is due to presence of fine grained fire clay which, when combined with 4% fine grog, increases the wet strength of the clay, thus allowing larger pieces to be thrown than many smoother clays.  While containing the same amount and size of grog as Standard 112, the Hazelnut is just slightly more crunchy through the addition of more textured clays in the clay formula.  Sales of S211 continue to increase as more and more potters discover this great clay and S-211 has recently achieved the first smiley award for becoming one of Dogwood Ceramic Supply's top selling Standard Clays.

Standard S910 Self Hardening Clay


Standard S910 Self Hardening Clay (do not fire)


    Standard Clay's S-910 Self-Hardening Clay, also known as Standard's S910 Air Dried Clay, is perfect for non-fired clay techniques and is the ideal clay for the classroom or recreation program that does not have access to a kiln. Self Hardening Clay dries upon exposure to air and will harden without firing. The clay is not watertight and may only be decorated with acrylics or other non-fired color products. The standard color is white and may also be advanced ordered in grey and red color.

Suggested uses for Self-Hardening/Air-Dried Clay:


    Retirement homes, hospitals and rehabilitation centers working with the elder and stroke patients to gain hand strength.  Standard's Air Dried Clay can be formed, reformed and may be possible to save in an airtight container for additional work.

    Kindergartens, Elementary and Middle Schools for earth day projects and basic art projects.  Standard Clay's Air Dried Clay allows a large number of students to perform a clay project without the need to kiln fire all of those pieces.  Remember the clay will harden when exposed to air and can be painted with acrylics.

    Science Fair projects.  Yes, those classic volcanoes can be made out of Air Dried Clay.

    Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts projects.  Air Dried Clay will generally not meet the requirements of pottery or ceramic merit badges as the clay can not be kiln fired or decorated with glazes.  At the same time, Air Dried Clay is perfect for Brownies and Cub Scout projects.

    The drying time is dependant upon the size of the piece, ambient temperature and air movement. The George Ohr Museum plans on most pinch pots or small coil pots hardening in 24 hours, which is perfect for their Summer Camp projects.  Larger (thicker) pieces may take 48-72 hours to completely dry.

    Please note, Standard Ceramic Supply, the manufacturer of Standard Clay, suggests the shelf life of S-910 Air Dried Clay to be limited to 6 months due to the risk of air exposure.  However, Gulfport Bayou View Middle School and Central Middle School hold over the excess S-910 Air Dried Clay from their annual Earth Day event to the next school year's event with little if no problem when the clay is store in a cool, dry place, such as the classroom.

Clay Shipping and Additional Information

 

 

Local Purchase of Standard Brand Clays


    All over-the-counter clay purchases will be made available for loading at the rear of the Dogwood Ceramic Supply showroom-warehouse at the ground level warehouse door.  Forklift service is available for loading bulk quantities of moist clay onto your truck.  Customers purchasing large quantities of clays and other heavy goods should read Safe Transportation of Slip and Clay to prevent overloading their vehicle.





Small Shipments of Standard's Moist Clays


    For customers needing small quantities of Standard's Moist Clays, Dogwood Ceramic Supply will ship their purchase via United Parcel Service (UPS). The 50 lb box of Standard Clay has an UPS billable weight of 51 lbs due the product packaging.  The rates and surcharges apply to each box shipped.  For a quick point of reference, most customers in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida Panhandle will ship at the UPS Zone 2 or Zone 3 shipping rates.  Please refer to UPS Shipping Zones for the complete list of shipping zones.

    The published UPS Ground Rates reflect delivery to schools and commercial locations and have been adjusted to include the variable fuel surcharge and rounded for ease of presentation.  Actual UPS shipping rates may vary slightly.  Rural and Residential Surcharges are additional.  

 





Pallets on loading dock

 

 

Bulk Shipments of Standard Clay


    UPS is great for shipping a single box or three of clay.  But at some point, usually about 5 boxes, UPS rates are no longer cost-effective.  Even UPS HundredWeight, which throws in a token discount for larger orders, doesn't do enough to control the shipping costs.  Enter in the Big Trucks.  Motor Freight.  Palletized loads.

 

 

 

    Whether you need 20,0000 lbs of clays and glazes (as shown in the photo above stacked on the Dogwood Ceramic Supply loading dock ready for shipment to a single customer) or just a few hundred pounds of moist clay, Motor Freight is usually a far better option than UPS... actually for most heavy loads shipping by Motor Freight is the only viable option.   As a point of reference, Dogwood Ceramic Supply can ship 1000 lbs of clay to most major cities across the Southern USA for as little as $150.  2000 lbs of clay can usually ship to the same locations for the same rate (wow, no increase in shipping charges) or for just a few dollars more.

 

    Freight is cheaper than UPS?  We think so.  1000 lbs of Moist Standard Clay to Houston, Atlanta or Memphis shipped via YRC (Yellow-Roadway Corp) to a commercial location for only $150 versus $450 for the same 20 boxes (1000 lbs of clay) via UPS to the same destinations.  Yep, motor freight is most definitely less expensive.

 

    Please refer to Motor Freight Shipping for additional information including shipping rates to various locations across the Southern USA.  Published rates are for delivery to schools and commercial locations with loading docks or offloading equipment and/or staff.  Residential rates and liftgate surcharges if required are additional charges.  Extremely rural rates may slightly differ.

 

 

 

 

Additional Information


    ALL brands of Moist Clay can not freeze. See Freeze Warning for additional information.  Freeze shipping restrictions may apply.


    Please note: Standard Clay is virtually impossible to damage during shipment and as such Dogwood Ceramic Supply does not use additional packaging materials such as double boxing and Styrofoam box liners for UPS shipments.  Compression of the box... which is just about impossible to do... is not an issue as everybody is going to eventually wedge their clay before usage.  Even small punctures, whether from an errant ski pole or whatever, is not an issue as the clay is not going to dry out during the day or two of shipping time.
