Earthstone Glacier Porcelain
Firing Temperature 1240°C - 1300°C

ES170 Glacier Porcelain is made using New Zealand China Clay and the whitest silica sand available. This gives ES170 its brilliant whiteness, strength and glass-like translucency; qualities which attract many potters to work with porcelain. However, due to the very nature of the raw materials used in their production, most porcelain bodies have very little natural plasticity. In order to overcome this many manufacturers add ball clay, thus sacrificing the translucency and whiteness. We have discovered that by using high quality, low iron-bearing china clays, silicas, bentonites and mineral fluxes, it is possible to produce a porcelain which is not only very white, but also translucent and very plastic. Earthstone Glacier Porcelain is probably the best porcelain body available. ES170 Glacier Porcelain is also available as a casting slip
