It seems some of my posts become lost so if there is a duplication of this note, I apologize.

Are there any readers making ocarina with knowledge of Budiro area clay? Is so could you please post its plasticity, firing range and density of product. What percentage of the clay is shale? Historically are the early ocarina made in that area easily scratched? is the clay fused or is it simply bisqued.

I continue to make ocarinas with local shale, quite short even tho aged now for a year. Green mold is growing on the clay, which is terrific and over time will help with the plasticity, but I should truly like to be connected with someone working with local clays.

attached is an example of a xun made from local clay and made in a slump mold from house insulation foam board. I like its surface aesthetic and finished with a shellac wash.

Isn't the Budrio stuff just what they use locally for roofing tiles?

Hey Jack, I'd imagine so, but what is it. I'm sure Clemson Univ has the sample tested but I was asking for a practical view from makers.

could not even begin to play the posted score.(!)
