Interesting! Many years ago, 25 or so, I did some separation of sand, silt, and clay similar to what you are doing. I did it in order to be left with a clay product suitable for constructing and repairing baseball pitching mounds and batters boxes. It was a lot of work! Fortunately, now, we are able to buy high quality virgin clay formed into bricks (unfired). They are extremely heavy, something like 72 lbs per package of 8.

Not an appealing picture, but here’s another batch of harvested clay from the pictures above.
