What can I make with centuries old clay dirt?


We just had our fireplace rebricked inside, and we used red clay bricks from a great grandmother’s old steps. They bricks are late 1800 to early 1900’s red clay bricks from our area. We had the bricks cut in half to line the back wall of the fireplace. I kept half a 5 gallon bucket full of the clay dust, which was left over. I’d like to make something with it... any ideas?
