Where to buy a bag of fire clay?
Question: I was roaming around the internet looking up things about clay and how to collect it yourself. I came across a post about getting a bag of fire clay in powder form for a decent price. I had priced fire brick before and was really hoping that what I read was true. That is when I found this site and was shocked to find that you are in Idaho Falls. I figured you might know the answer better than the internet since you are here too. Either way, great site! I am gonna spend some time here learning.
Answer: Great to hear from a local! Thanks for checking out the site. To answer your question, the closest places to find powered clay in bags is either the Potter's Center in Boise, or Capital Ceramics in SLC. I like both, just depends on which direction you are heading. They'll ship it too, but obviously that has added costs.
For wet clay, you can get bags of it at the ISU craft shop in Pocatello. It's more expensive, but if you really need to get some quickly it's nice to have them there.
