How Thin Does Ceramic Need To Be For Light To Pass Through It?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


I'm looking into making a lamp shade out of ceramic and was wondering how thin does the ceramic layer need to be for light to pass through it? 


And from this how strong/durable would this be? 


Any help appreciated, thanks

A translucent porcelain would be what you are looking for ... light glows through it when fired to maturity.

Thick for me would be 1/8" but others might have had success thicker.

It would be strong ... the durable depends on the owner.
