Hi, I have a question about the compressive strength of porcelain vs stoneware, if both clays are modelled with the same thickness and are both cone 6 clays. Which one would be stronger or better to use for large (4-5ft) sculptures? Thanks, Callum
A forum friend and I have been discussing the cause/s of s cracks. I would like to poll the forum for some additional information. 1 do you experience this problem more with stoneware or porcelain? 2. If stoneware, is the body white, tan, grey, or dark? 3. If porcelain, do you know if sodium was used as the primary flux? 4. Does it occur more during hot weather? 5. Have you noticed any differences in outcome if the base is thick or thin? Feel free to share thoughts, opinions, or other information. Thanks for the input. Tom
