near to Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, Great Britain

Gladstone Pottery Museum - the slip room
Gladstone Pottery Museum - the slip room
This is adjoining the engine house and the machinery would have been steam driven. This is where the clay is prepared and turned into a liquid form - slip - suitable for turning into ware. The machinery is driven by lineshafting and includes a blunger and a pump. The magnet that is visible is to remove particles of magnetic metal from the slip. The blunger was made by Wm Boulton of Burslem - a noted name in the potteries.
