Find a potter. You could actually order clay from someplace like  
Continental Clay, they supply people all over the country, but if you  
just go to art fairs you'll meet a ton of potters. They usually reuse  
clay, but might have waste clay you can acquire. Even sweeping the  
floor can yield a ton of clay. You'd still need to mix it with sand  
and straw to make cob, but it sure beats digging.

my ears.
