I made this chart of the 12 types of clay available in the ceramics workshop at Camberwell College of Art UAL.

The workshop facility is used by students from all disciplines who do not necessarily have any ceramics knowledge.

The chart is similar to the one I made for the ceramics workshop at Wimbledon College of Art showing each clay in its varying states, from raw, 1000 bisque to earthenware and stoneware glaze temperatures.
