the word chamote is correct. It is not a localism. It is widely used in
south America. I too had great difficulty with Spanish terms on arrival to

Spanish and I was teaching pottery in Spanish in no time. For those
interested, the book is from an editorial house called Parramon ediciones

teaching books on everything you can think of in spanish. Remember too that
a person who does ceramics is an alfarero, and the activity is alfareria. It
makes searches easier in Spain.
