Love that dark clay!

Here are three pieces from my last batch using a high shrinkage dark claybody. I understand that the dark color comes from manganese and dark ball clay. I stain it with iron on the bisque to give it an even darker color than it already has. It is the closest clay that I can find to match the fine Tokoname look that is used for exhibition bonsai.
