Plastic Clay

Plastic Clay

An extremely rare mineral, plastic clay (sometimes known as ball clay) is only found in a handful of locations around the world.

It’s a sedimentary material, made from kaolinite or decomposed granite that has been mixed through river action with other clays, sands, gravel and vegetation.

The plasticity of this mineral ensures that the main use of plastic clay is as a base material in the manufacture of ceramics. Plastic clays have a wide range of colours, but when fired, selected clays give results that are pure white.


Our plastic clay products are drawn from reserves in:

  • Czech Republic
  • France
  • Finland
  • Germany
  • Spain
  • Ukraine
  • United Kingdom
