Mark, thanks for the tip. I never check people's post history. I saw it was from 2014, but I know people always seem to come and go and then come back to this forum. Well, at least that's the case with me :P

cone 04 translucent porcelain body was mentioned in passing by Kurt Weiser. The recipe is 50% NewZealand China Clay, 50% Ferro Frit 3195 and 2% VeeGum to increase plasticity..

 

 

Crackpot,  

 

Hi, I'm just wondering where you got the New Zealand China Clay? I noticed you live in Canada so I'm guessing you didn't get it in New Zealand. I live in California and was hoping to get it online.

 

Thanks,

Mug-

 

I'm very sorry that happened to your son and hope he recovers 100%. It just broke my heart to read that. I only have one child, a son who is 16. He had to have minor surgery while we were on vacation in Africa. I was freaking out! I think it is great that you are exploring this to get him involved too.

 

Best of Luck,
