The name Parian is derived from Paros, the Aegian Island famous for its beautiful white marble widely used for sculpture by the classical Greeks. Parian ware became very popular in the mid-nineteenth century and was manufactured by many notable Stoke-on-Trent potteries.
Parian is a self-glazing body, extremely translucent through a large temperature range. Ideally suited for casting to produce figurines, dolls and light forms etc.

I love the white Parian. I find it more translucent and a better surface than porcelain. It does slump/ warp a bit and I’m finding that setters are very hard to release. Does anyone have a recommendation for the high fire programme? What ramps and soaks to use to help with any distortion? It really is beautiful stuff!

I have found that the Parian casting slip is by far the easiest porcelain to cast with. It is a self glazing clay so once fired it has a slight shine/shimmer to it. It is fine to go straight onto the kiln shelf, however, does stick to it's own body if slabs are placed on top of one another during the firing. It is a slightly off-white colour in comparison to other porcelains.
