Earthenware White A general purpose low-fire white clay for electric kiln firing. Fires very white. Shows glazes well.
Earthenware White Plus (includes sand) A general purpose low-fire white clay for electric kiln firing with fine sand for tooth. Fires very white. Shows glazes well.
Terra Blanc (no talc) A very smooth porcelain-like non-talc based low-fire white clay that is easier to throw, especially for beginners. Fires to a creamy white at Cone 04. Low shrinkage and great glaze fit.
Raku (includes grog) A low-fire white clay with the addition of about 9% grog (30 mesh flint grog). Fires off-white at Cone 04 Electric. Suitable for raku firing and other primitive firing methods as well as sculpture, throwing, tiles, and handbuilt projects fired in an electric kiln.
Raku Plus (includes kyanite) A low-fire white clay with the addition of kyanite increased excellent thermal shock resistance. Fires off-white at Cone 04 Electric. Suitable for raku firing and other primitive firing methods as well as sculpture, throwing, tiles, and handbuilt projects fired in an electric kiln.
Earthenware Red A low fire red clay that fires to a light red-orange color at cone 06 to 05, and a richer, deeper red color when fired hotter, up to about a cone 2.
Earthenware Red Plus (includes sand) A low fire red clay with fine sand added to give the body some tooth, but not as coarse as Terra Cotta. Fires to a light red-orange color at cone 06 to 05, and a richer, deeper red color when fired hotter, up to about a cone 2.
Terra Cotta (includes grog) A low fire red clay with heavy grog (30 mesh flint grog) added for texture that fires to a light red-orange color at cone 06 to 05, and a richer, deeper red color when fired hotter, up to about a cone 2.
5/6 Buff A medium-range light stoneware body which fires off-white to buff in oxidation and slightly darker in reduction. It has a slight toothy feel from the fireclay but contains no grog which makes it a good general purpose throwing body.
5/6 Buff Plus (includes grog) A medium-range light stoneware body with a medium grog added which fires off-white to buff in oxidation and slightly darker in reduction.
5/6 Red  A medium-range stoneware body which fires to a warm red color in oxidation and slightly darker in reduction. Fires darker at the higher end of the temperature range.
5/6 Black A medium-range stoneware body that mimics a gas-fired reduction clay body in oxidation. Peppery tan “reduction look” when fired in an electric kiln (NOT A TRUE BLACK CLAY). Not recommended for use in reduction.
Missouri Gold A medium-range stoneware body that fires to a warm tan color. A fair amount of natural tooth makes this clay easy to work with, but contains no grog.
5/6 Porcelain An inexpensive medium-range porcelain made from domestic kaolins. Great for someone just learning to work with porcelain within this range. Fires to a creamy white.
Stoneware A high-fire throwing body with iron-based fireclays which produce warm browns in reduction. Contains no grog but has a fair amount of fine tooth due to the high fireclay content.
Stoneware Plus (includes grog) A high-fire throwing body with iron-based fireclays and a medium coarse grog which produce warm browns in reduction.
Stoneware White A non-iron based high-fire stoneware body. Fires to a buff color and provides a good background for glazes. Slightly smoother than regular Stoneware.
Stoneware White with Grog   A non-iron based high-fire stoneware body with a high percentage of 30 mesh flint grog. Fires to a buff color and provides a good background for glazes. Suitable for high-fire throwing, sculpture, and handbuilding as well as raku and primitive firing methods.
Bracker’s Special A light colored stoneware body with good “tooth” for throwing. Bill Brackers special standard clay body recipe for atmospheric firings like salt/soda/wood firings.
Linda’s Sculpture Clay A smooth porcelain containing a large amount of cellulose fiber suitable for monumental size sculptures..
Redstone A high-fire, high iron red stoneware throwing body which fires to a rich red in reduction.
Domestic Porcelain A high-fire, inexpensive porcelain made from domestic kaolins. Fires to a cool white with blue-gray undertones as opposed to the yellowish undertones in English Porcelain. This body is especially nice when woodfired. Not suitable for celadon and copper red glazes in reduction due to the presence of titanium in the clay.
English Porcelain A high-fire, carefully blended porcelain made from English Grolleg Kaolin. Fires to a warm white with yellowish undertones as opposed to the domestic porcelain which has more of the blue-gray undertones. Great for all methods of firing and suitable for celadon and copper red glazes in reduction.
