A fine-grained plastic volcanic ash clay that is quite sticky with a high shrinkage. It is never used alone due to its high shrinkage rate and its tendency to cause swelling. Used in bodies in small percentages to aid in plasticity and Bentonite may also be used as a suspending agent in glazes (1 - 2%) suspension.
