Anyone got any suggestions as best place to buy a single 25kg bag of powdered fireclay? I have tried Liam but he only does orders over £100 and even though Vitcas are local to me in Bristol the girl I spoke to didn't even know what it was. I see on ebay someone called AA supplies are selling some but I'm sure I've read on an old thread that its quite lumpy.
I found a Kiln supplier in Newport www.celtickilncare.co.uk/ ...and he carries a limited stock of fire-clay. The day I popped in (I often do that if I pass any company that deals in clay) he had 2x25kg bags of dried fire-clay in stock. If you ever come over this way...he may be worth a call.(across that muddy river in Newport)
Also you could try contacting Amrit Rowe www.wood-firedoven.co.uk/ ....he's a member on the forum but also a damn good wood-fired oven builder. He is not far from you and could perhaps point you to the closest supplier. (his contact details are on his website)
I am struggling to find any fire clay around Birmingham and to get some ordered I would pay for the delivery more than the actual clay price. Does any of you know where I could find some in drivable distance (1 hour drive)?
I can't understand why people other with fire clay and the homebrew mix. I just used fire cement £15 per 25kg bag, mixed with fire brick grog £15 per 25kg bag mixed 3/1. I collected from stoke the capital of kilns in days gone by.
