What Causes Clay To Crack?

Written by Tara

Accept it. Cracking is normal in air dry clays: it’s caused by shrinkage because of the loss of the water inside the clay body. Cracking in air dry clay is typically caused by sculpting over an armature or using a lot of water, either to mix the clay or to help it adhere onto a previous layer.

In general, cracks result from stresses in the clay. There is always some stress in clay because of the fact that it shrinks as it dries and when it is fired, and it also expands and contracts during firing. Sometimes the stress is too much for the clay to handle and it cracks.
