Fine clay that is rich in color red. 'The color red derives from the iron-bearing clays used their clay bodies. The iron already within the clay body acts as a fluxing (melting) agent, which matures the clay at relatively low temperatures.' Ideal for handbuilding and wheelthrowing.
Purchased clay is already mixed with Rice hull ash (alternative for sand) Rice hull ash contains silica which is used as binder for clay.This is much finer than sand. The clay is much easier to work with, especially when carving, if mixed with ash.
