The walls are very thin, yet no trimming was done to make them thin. Why? It is super plastic. Others claim to be plastic, but they use the word in a relative sense. They mean a little less flabby than that other really flabby porcelain! Polar ice, when it has the right water content (dewater it on a bat if needed), is tough enough to throw as large as even the most plastic stonewares. It might seem impossible that a body this translucent can be as plastic as it is, read its data sheet to find out how they did it.
The Polar Ice data sheet has been changed. In the past we have been hesitant about firing it over cone 6. This is because it is just so vitreous and translucent that firing it higher seemed to be asking for trouble (like warping, blistering). But at cone 10R it is still resistant to warping. And fires this beautiful blue-white. The translucency, amazingly, is about the same: Incredible! This is among the most incredible pieces we have ever made in the studio here, it is hard to believe it is possible produce this kind of quality in a pottery studio.
