Default Where to purchase Fire Clay in Seattle

Does anyone know where to purchase Fire Clay in the Seattle area? Is 'Fire Clay' an industrial term or is there another name/term for it?
Thanks,
John

John,

Fireclay is indeed an industrial term. You might be able to find it at companies who sell pottery and kiln supplies; at least you can where I am. You want the finest "screen" they have; ie, the smallest, finest particles.

Try Mutual Materials (in phone book and online). Also try Glacier Northwest they have lots of this sort of thing including vermiculite and perlite. Cheaper than Seattle Pottery Supply.

Thanks for the quick reply Wiley and CanuckJim.
I did find some at Seattle Pottery. $10 for 50lbs. Not sure if that is expensive or not, but one more item off the list and I'm ready when I finish off the insulation layer of my hearth.
Cheers,
