Creamware Talc Free Earthenware

Developed as a result of generally hating the color and feel of talc. The main talc is from a mine in Van Horn Texas, the raw material is charcoal grey but fires white. The Texas talc is tremolite free and platey in structure, but is contains silica so is treated as toxic in the dry form.
