Are they raw clay or have they been kiln fired?

What are you planning to do with it? Make a clay dome? Use as refractory mortar?

There are successful clay/adobe/daub ovens: it could be argued that having proper potter's clay would be a world of advantage over digging stuff up from a riverbank. Clay ovens are a little beyond my scope of expertise. Good luck with your project.
