Hi everyone. I have been using Helios porcelain in a community studio where they only fire cone 10-11 reduction. At home I have a Cone 8 electric kiln, and while the Helios can be fired to Cone 7 I am concerned about whether it will vitrify enough for the translucency I want. (My kiln is too large to fire experimentally). I find it very easy to throw with Helios, and it's only slightly more fussy than the stoneware bodies I have used. As long as I dry it slowly I have had no issues with cracking or kiln slumping (knock on wood). I decided to try Elaine's Crystal Cone 6 from Sheffield.
