Avi Amesbury: Volcanic ash

The properties of the volcanic ash in the porcelain seem to enhance the porcelains strength, enabling me to go larger and thinner without the normal problems of using large thin porcelain. I’m still experimenting with how large and how thin. I’ve uploaded some images - the previous smaller forms are where I started (Diam:90 x H:40mm), the platter (Diam:550) is where it’s moving too – although there’s the usual restraints of kilns, kiln shelves and cost to fire the larger experiments.
