Terra sigillata with Ball Clay for cone 06

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if a terra sigillata made complitely with ball clay (or made partly with ball clay  and partly with white earthenware clay) could be suitable for a cone 06-07 firing. I'm attracted by the fineness of the particles of  ball clay, in order to obtain more terra sigillata in proportion to the clay used, but I'm afraid it requires firing at higher temperatures .... Does anyone have any idea?

Terra sig is traditionally made with ball clay, some recipes here if you need them (Pete Pinnell's recipe is a good one). Cone 07 - 06 isn't too hot for terra sig, they work okay at these temperatures but can be fired much cooler also.
