    Sio-2 Black Stoneware

    I noted the recent discussion of Sio-2's black ice (porcelain), and saw that they also offered a black stoneware (PRNI). I'll order some to test, but didn't know if anyone else had any opinions. Peter
  2. If you have access to Tucker clays, I'd recommend trying either mid cal and/or CCSS. Peter

    Porcelain 5-6?

    Tucker's MCS is good, and Tucker has other Cone 6 porcelains. Peter
  4. I realize that you specified SC clay bodies, but you might look at Tucker's. Peter

    Calcining Alberta Slip Clay

    I've calcined it with a batch of 04 bisque, without any melting or problems. It did get a bit "crunchy" so I just mashed it in a mortar/ pestel so it would better pass thru the sieve.

    What's Your All Time Favorite Clay?

    Stoneware, cone 6, Tucker's mid cal. Peter Pache
  8. You might look at New Mexico Clay: http://www.nmclay.com/ I used both their Columbine (porcelain) and White Stoneware clays; Brant (owner) has always been helpful. Peter

    gerstly borate

    I've used up to 40% gerstley without pitting. You might try substituting ferro frit 3134 and see how the glaze reacts -- good luck.

    <<What do you think of the Marxist philosophy rolled into this document?>> I skipped that part :-) I'm rather surprised his thesis committee allowed it ---
