After some time with Google here is what I found

(.[1] In addition unavailability ofother materials such as Jordan clay and Avery kaolin, have brought attention tothe advantages of seeking alternate sources or distributors for ceramic glazematerials. The glaze materials areproduced for mass industrial use and its continued production and supply isdependent on continued industrial need. Despite ubiquitous use of these materials by potters and ceramists, theyare not a significant portion of the buying market and therefore have littlecontrol over the production of materials that are vital to theirprofession. In response to the unavailabilityof Gerstley borate, Jordan clay, and Avery kaolin, potters have explored use ofover the counter sources of glaze materials. In addition there has been a resurgence of interest inobtaining glaze materials and clays naturally by locating clay deposits androcks in the local environment.)

 

So its a koalin clay-Use EPK to start as its cheap and easy.Mark<br clear="all">

The beauty of Avery is that it flashes very well in wood and salt kilns. EPK is a good start. If it's a small part of a recipe it probably won't make too much difference. If it's a large part, you may want to try milling it down to a finer size. Also Try Helmer Kaolin if you're making a flashing slip.
