I have a question for you Jonathan. What materials do you recommend for
potters in place of fireclays? I love using fireclay in my bodies, but
would I be open to trying something else. Only problem is that I worked
hard to get this body for consistency in both wood and salt. So what
materials that are comminly available would you use in place? Fireclays are
half of my standard clay body. Maybe it would be cheaper than AP Green

100 Goldart
100 AP Green Fireclay
100 OM4 Ball Clay
50 Custer Spar
50 EPK
15 Grog (optional)
