Small Footed Bowl
Size: 16cm wide x 5cm tall
Size: 18cm wide x 6cm tall
The bodies are similar porcelains, both with useful firing ranges between 1165C and 1200C. Both can be pushed a little higher though this must be at the judgement of the user. The Chinese bisque is a brighter white than items made here. The bodies are comparable in firing performance to PW20.
In general, smaller pieces are imported and larger pieces made in NZ.
This material is perfectly suited to use with Abbots Mid-Fire glazes and indeed all development and routine glaze testing is done on these bodies.
Decopot bisque is an ideal foundation for decoration with Claybright Underglaze, then covered with Abbots Clear and fired to approx. 1180C.
