I am making some tiles for my friend's new home. I
would like to use
a highfire clay--probably Soldate 60.

I use Soldate 60 all the time with low fire glazes. I bisque to C/04
and fire the glazes to C/06 & 05 both with no problems. You didn't
mention if the tiles were for foot traffic or not. My tile work is used
behind a wood stove, so I can't speak to the wear and tear of foot
traffic. Mike Gordon
