Fired without a glaze

Three of the most successful testers. Once the porcelain was fired to 1280, the colour and texture of the pieces changed. The porcelain changed to an off white/cream colour and had a bone like texture which has an opaque like quality to it.

Once it had a clear glaze added the porcelain looked wet but also looked silky smooth.

The white glaze, similarly to the clear glaze, created a wet looking piece. The piece still looked silky but the colour made it look pure. White being a colour which symbolises purity.
