The first piece I made with Southern Ice, it measures approximately 18cm x 15cm x 7cm. Fired to cone 10 in oxidation, unglazed and polished with silicon carbide abrasive paper. This is an abstract piece, originally thrown and then formed to shape.

LBSI - Southern Ice.

Truly magnificent, translucent, white porcelain. While it is one of the best porcelains available it is also surprisingly easy to work. For best whiteness and translucency fire in reduction. SOUTHERN ICE has received international recognition as one the world’s best porcelain bodies and is now sold in Europe, UK, USA, NZ, Switzerland, France and Singapore.
