Earthenware White A general purpose low-fire white clay for electric kiln firing. Fires very white. Shows glazes well.  DISCONTINUING DECEMBER 2022
Birch Bark A general purpose low-fire white clay well-suited for sculpture purposes.  Contains fine sand and grog.   NO TALC, for best glaze results, bisque fire to Cone 01
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.
   
Eric Stearns “Unshockable” Raku Clay A low-fire white clay with the addition of kyanite increased excellent thermal shock resistance. Suitable for raku firing and other primitive firing methods
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.
Kansas Wheat 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.
Peppered Wheat  
Red Brick Road A medium-range stoneware body which fires to a warm red color in oxidation
Red Cobblestone  
Bison Rich dark brown stoneware clay
Coffed Grind  
Winter Wind 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.
Pyrate Freckle  
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 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.
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.
High Plains Porcelain
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.
