Graphic example of clay shrinkage from firing.

I hadn't ever really gave much thought to clay shrinkage from the firing process. I had read about how it is a normal thing to happen. After making a few more pressed clay bricks for a later firing, I put a finshed brick next to them to compare the colors. What caught my eye though was the size difference of before and after. Pretty amazing when you get a side by side like this.
