Hawthorn Clay For Cob Ovens:

HAWTHORN BOND 35M Fire Clay- 50lb Bag Dry Clay


People use many different types of clay for backyard ovens for bread and pizza and more. We recommend Hawthorn Fire Clay because of it's workability and affordability.
This dry clay is much less expensive than a "potter's clay" which is usually a moist clay with fluxes and glass formers which are not needed for a clay oven.

Coarse fire clay (either 20 or 35 mesh) is "toothy" so it is a good clay for any kind of adobe construction.
For this type of oven building, people will mix the clay in various proportions with chopped straw and sand.
Masonry sand is always recommended over "play sand" : Play sand is usually a river-run sand so the particles are smooth and round making it suitable for a sand box, where a mason's sand is a more block-like shaped particle which microscopically stacks like tiny bricks making it suitable as an aggregate in cement, mortar and clay or adobe blends.

Clay adobe ovens do not get hot enough to actually turn the clay to hardened ceramic like it would in a kiln firing. The clay will be quite hard to the touch but will turn soft again in rain so backyard ovens should have a shed roof or some other way to protect it from the elements. Some folks add some Portland cement, especially in a finish coat to help give a bit more water resistance.

We offer this clay for it's use in pottery making. Since oven building is beyond the scope of the manufacturers' recommendations to use this for oven building projects, we cannot really guarantee it's performance. All we can say is that , people have told us that it works well !!! So TEST TEST TEST !!! It is up to you to make sure it is going to work with your methods.

The items people order from us for their oven building projects are fire brick and kiln shelves. Our high temperatures bricks are used as the floor and or walls of the oven. Kiln shelves are commonly used as a nice smooth floor or like a pizza stone. Again, these applications are beyond the normal usage for these materials. Kiln shelves are not FDA rated for food. We make no claim as to their suitability , all we know is that pizza and bread makers order these things all the time !
