  1. Flux Formula Limits For Porcelain

    But why throw thick if you don't have to. My porcelain is very very friendly. In my opinion it is the most throwable ( clay ) (any clay) I have worked with. This isn't the best example, it's an earlier test with a thin clear under a thin rutil blue . but it is 1/4 inch thick . with very little trimming . I have never seen or know from experience how thick or thin any other translucent porcelains are. I've never worked with southern ice or the cone 6 variation. I've heard the expansions of it and it sounds like it throws like cold bacon grease. Anyway if any of you have first hand knowledge of thickness of Chinese porcelain I would appreciate it. Thanks.
  2. Flux Formula Limits For Porcelain

    Thanks. For all the information. Although I don't understand some of it. .. I have been working on a porcelain body for about 6 years now. It is cone 9 maybe 10. I have to do alot more testing still . it's been a long road, but a great drive. Anyway this is what I've been able to get

  7. hello all. first timer here i have been working on a clay formula or 3 for about 4 years and trying to get some input on how many potters actually like the clay there are using. to this point i have made a white porcelain/stoneware clay that dose not warp while drying,[ with utilitarian wares ] no need to wire off plastic bats . [ released its self ] air drying. [ no need to cover it up ] and so far doesn't have any cracking issues. [ example ], i threw 25 4.5 lbs 12 inch plates on plastic bats, air dried them , did not wire them of the next day some had already released themselves and were as flat as the bat. trimmed them all. bisqued them and fired to cone 10. i would appreciate any comments . thanks tobias
