This is a government text I've found useful in finding wild clays to play with. Maybe the Ontario Pottery crowd has seen it before, but if not, I hope it's useful.

Tony Clennell works/worked(?) with local ingredients ... he used to collect mineral dust along the Niagara escarpment and even from the gravel dust in his driveway. Got some interesting color results too.
I'm looking forward to teaching up in Aylmer at Pinecroft this June so I can see what he has been doing lately.

Always amazing what's in your own back yard.
We were sinking a dam on our property and unearthed great clay, some I just wedgd up and was throwable! , have always been gonna crush local laterite and ad it to clay body to get bleeding effects, lots of stuff around! need another lifetime or three

Hey Tyler - I use this doc a lot. I get run off clay from around Terra Cotta and make a nice brown glaze with the addition of 20% 3134 frit.

OK - let's see if this works - trying to add the photo of the glaze
