Hey all,

I am looking into making a ceramic chiminea and am not sure what clay I should use for this. Also, any ideas for what glaze, if any?

P.S. A chiminea is an outdoor fireplace.

I wouldn't use any glaze and I would make it out of micaceous clay.

I've often considered making a "big Green Egg" type of barbecue grill, but by passed it as I didn't know what type of clay to use.
