Stoneware pots were produced in the temperature range 1120-1220 using as raw materials ball clays from the mining area of Teruel (Spain) with additions of feldspars and without quartz additions. Data about water absorption, shrinkage, flexural strength and colour space (L a* b*) are provided, as well as semiquantitative estimations of the crystalline phases in the bodies using the reference intensity method. The results fulfil the norm ISO-13006 regarding water absorption and mechanical strength at 1185 °C. In addition, it is shown that the intensity reference method was a good alternative to more advanced quantitative methods.
