I am having issues finding keraflex porcelain - a transparent, durable ceramic material that comes in .5mm sheets of paper, which can then be cut, constructed and fired to cone 10. Does anyone have this material and know where I can purchase it? I recently found out that the only American supplier, ceramicArtcart, does not know when they will have it in stock again...

I've looked online and found other sites in Europe - I've contacted several of them to see if they are able to ship it to the U.S (I'll keep you posted on what I find).


Thank you!

They sell it in the vendors' exhibits at NCECA.
It will be in Houston in 2 weeks.

Thank you Marcia - I heard that they have had a vendor at NCECA in the past but fear they may not this year since the American supplier does not know when they will have it in stock again. Fingers crossed!

Axner.com sells ceramic substrate canvass which sounds really similar.

It sounds similar but I don't think the ceramic substrate is flexible - that's one of the qualities, besides translucency, that I'm seeking.
