[11/25/08] EPA is announcing the availability of this final report.
EPA has released the final report entitled, An Exploratory Study: Assessment of Modeled Dioxin Exposure in Ceramic Art Studios. The purpose of this report is to investigate the potential dioxin exposure to artists/hobbyists who use ball clay to make pottery and related products. Dermal, inhalation, and ingestion exposures to clay were measured at the ceramics art department of Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. The exposure estimates were based on measured levels of clay in the studio air, deposited on surrogate food samples and on the skin of the artists.
