Culture & Context

Troopers Hill has been mined for Fireclay in the past. The clay I collected here fires to Cone 9/10 without issue and throws wonderfully. The clay was just sieved coarsely and ready to throw.The rock is a mudstone that outcrops on the south side of the hill. This rock only requires wood ash to make a functional glaze.
