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 ñ 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.
