We are about to build our first masonry stove and want to use clay mortar. We have much clay on our property and would like to use it. Does anyone know of a method to prepare a clay mortar and test it for suitability in a masonry stove build?

Thanks for the book ads allen, though I'm sure they are great, at this time I only want to know about clay mortar, and was hoping someone has done this and can give me a simple process to test and evaluate and mix clay mortar from local clay soil. Or a recipe? Otherwise Ill just start experimenting with 1/1 clay to sand and test a bunch of bricks…in a fire…i guess….
