PART 2: Brick making.mold



making bricks using a mold.
Recipe:
grog – 40
fire clay – 40
ball clay – 20

The recipe is not my special batch: “Contemporary Ceramic Formulas” by John W. Conrad. I did a lot of research on what to use for a recipe, and was given a nice recipe by the LH Project in Joseph Oregon. The bottom line is that most of the recipes are identical with general modifications.
The shrinkage was more than I wanted about 15%-ish , so if your building bricks for a kiln, take care with even drying.
