Thanks, Lisa, for posting this description. It is the clay I've used for
about 3 years, and am still facinated by it. The potter whose studio I use
has always denigrated it as "not real porcelain," but she only fires to cone
6, so, short of finding another space, what to do? It performs well, but
does tend to warp a bit sometimes. (I suspect that is when fired above cone
6, but she assures me that never happens...) Anyway, whatever it is called,
it is beautiful stuff.
