I'm not sure just how smooth you mean, Big Dave, but I use a brown/black
from Aardvark that is dark brown and I think is relatively smooth. It's
easy to throw, also, if that matters to you ... does to me.

In the Mojave (9 miles west of Ridgecrest, California U.S.A. and 2 miles
east of Inyokern)

Lizella from Lizella, Georgia, however it can only be fired to Cone 6, best
at cone 5 oxidation. I have no experience with it in reduction, but you could
ask them.
