single firing (raw firing) and dipping glazes,

I am afraid that I do not know the recipe for the claybody I use for my
pieces. It comes pre-pugged from Armadillo Clay and Supply in Austin TX.

I can tell you that the 10% grogged body seemed to survive raw glazing and
dipping at a bone dry state better than the high-iron red clay (both
mid-fire cone 5 bodies.) The low-iron white midfire porcelainous clay had
the most problem, probably because they had the thinnest walls of them all.

Does anybody have a suggestion for a clay body particularly suited to raw
