  • This too may be too late, but…Soldate 60 from Laguna clay is an excellent choice. It contains 60 mesh sand and handles thermal shock very well.

    most clay bodies with a fair amount of grog will work. it has to be able to withstand the thermal expansion. Best way to see if a clay will work is to try it out in a firing.

    I use a clay called Rod’s Bod, which is a cone 10 clay, but performs really well in Raku. I think it comes from Clay Art in Tacoma Wa.

    This is my diptych from a CM article from 1998. The red Brinze recipe is the liner glazes around the horses. The background glazes in this picture is Dry Alligator sprayed on, fired to ^06 and reduced face down in straw.

    I know this is late and you probably already have a Raku clay, but I’ve been using Laguna Clay’s WSO. It’s a cone 10 body, but it fires very well for Raku. I’ve been using it for over 20 years, making pieces at heavey as 85 pounds and Raku firings them.

    Good luck!
