A Note About Burley Clay's Unique Process
Burley Clay uses several different production methods to produce their stoneware. From high-tech hydraulic and ram presses to the craftsmanship required in jiggering and casting, their production methods differ significantly but share certain features - an emphasis on quality, efficiency, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. Certain production methods require thicker, more solid clay, while others demand a thinner, more liquid consistency. The processes carefully clean and mix the clay blend at a perfect consistency specific to each production method.
One of the methods Burley Clay employs today is a rarely found "lost art" form known as jiggering. It's an old-fashioned, hand-made process used to create several of their larger items, such as birdbaths, pedestals, and planters. In this process, the jiggerman places a plaster mold inside a spinning steel drum, then adds an estimated amount of clay inside of the mold determined by the size of the piece to be manufactured.
As the clay begins to dry, the plaster mold draws the water away from the clay, releasing the clay from the mold. The ware is then removed from the mold and the rough edges are trimmed. This acquired skill requires years of apprenticeship and is usually passed down to family members who have worked in area potteries for generations.
