Clay — I bought from Top Pot Supplies, Oak Barton, Stoke-on-Trent ST12 9AF https://www.toppotsupplies.co.uk/

Fire bricks also called refractory bricks — I saw some second hand, but I would not want to eat off anything that might have been used in Sheffield’s industries… Worth looking at Vitcas website – Will cost about £100
