The following clays are available at The Village Potters Clay Company without pre-order (for small quantities):
Miller 900: Cone 6-10 A warm iron bearing stoneware. This clay body has marvelous throwing properties and fires tan in oxidation and a nice warm brown in reduction. Village Potter Sarah Wells Rolland has been using this clay body for over 15 years now. In Stock
Miller 850: Cone 6-10 A buff stoneware clay. This clay body has all the wonderful properties as the Miller 900 only less iron content making the clay a lighter stoneware. In Stock
B Mix Clays: We are thrilled to offer B Mix to our community. This white stoneware fires to a light grey in reduction. It has a firing range from 6-10 This is a popular clay for wood, salt and soda fire. We carry 3 different B Mix clays.
B Mix: Cone 6-10 A white stoneware clay body with super throwing properties. This clay body was created to stretch. Though it requires a bit extra attention than other stoneware clays this clay body is a dream for potters who love to throw and want a white canvas for the surface of their pots.

B Mix Grog: Cone 6-12. Also like standard B Mix, but with grog! In stock
Porcelain Clays: Porcelain clay is a clay every potter tries and some become completely enamored with. Its soft, plastic nature and it translucent white surface are captivating and worth the extra challenges say many potters. We are delighted to make Grolleg porcelain and Frost porcelain available to the potters of our region.
