Related Information

Tile #6 Kaolin is the most plastic kaolin available in North America

It is a designer kaolin, they add bentonite to the material during manufacture. This vase is made from the pure material, it is very thin and light. The fired color is lighter than what you get when you add common raw bentonite to other less plastic kaolins (to bring them to the same degree of plasticity).
