Quite rightly, concerns exist around the safety of black clays in the studio and on functional ware.

It is true that historically, some black bodies have been coloured with Manganese Oxide which is a toxin. Years ago, Decopot declined to purchase such bodies from an Asian supplier.

NIGRA 2002 sold under the Primo-Pro label is manufactured by a reputable European supplier and widely sold throughout Europe. We have our supplier’s absolute assurance that this body (pigmented with manufactured stains) is safe to use.
