Hello my fellow forum members, I was hoping for a little guidance as to what is a good cone 5/6 clay for large open body pieces, "large bowls ect' I have been using Laguna Clay "Calico" which I have found to be very inconsistent from bag to bag, and very weak. I would prefer to use an Aardvark Clay as they are the closest to me. I look forward to your responses. Thank You

For an all-purpose cone 6 white stoneware the best I've found after testing lots of commercial and from scratch bodies is Laguna's B-Mix.

Jim, Thank You for the recommendation. I will probably give that a try.
