Clay for Crystalline?

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I need to get a good clay for doing Macrocrystilline. The company I intern for uses a white stoneware for their crystalline pottery, but I know, traditionally, it is done on porcelain. 

 

Does anyone have any clay tips, I only have Standard clay available to me. I will be firing to ^9/10

 

Thanks!

Coleman Porcelain. >Aatdvark Clay is highly rated for Cone 10. Laguna Frost porcelain- cone 6. Any "high white" porcelain will work. Translucency is not a requirement for crystals. Colorants should be 325 mesh. Alumina, titanium dioxide, red iron, copper carb, manganese, cobalt carb. ilumenite, and rutile are commonly used in crystal recipes. Small quantities: very little colorant goes a long way.

So, I only have Standard clay around me. I am thinking this: https://standardceramic.com/collections/clay/products/257-grolleg-porcelain-clay

 

Do you also think that is a suitable clay?

 

Thanks,

Brandon
