Eileen Black discovered Loafer’s Glory back in 1995 when she was experimenting with cone ten reduction reds. She needed a clay body that would work with the copper reds as well as her usual suite of glazes.
Loafer’s Glory was the answer for her since it combines the unique characteristics of porcelain with the ease of throwing and handling of stoneware. Eileen works predominately on the wheel and is extremely pleased with the consistency and the pulling height of the clay.
“Loafer’s Glory allows me to produce tall pitchers without worrying about collapsing clay.” She and her husband Marty operate a pottery studio, The Potter’s Mark Ltd. in the historic River District’s Cotton Mill Studios in Asheville, NC.
