Mid fire Lumina: Keanes
in-store pickup only. Delivery details are just an automatic, compulsory function of the online checkout
KEANE Lumina Mid Fire is a beautiful crisp white porcelain.
We have used the most expensive micro-fine iron-free bentonite with the brightest firing kaolins. The result is a silky smooth white body with a glossy finish. KEANE Lumina Mid Fire is a true porcelain so firing accurately is important. Thin pieces will be amazingly translucent. The added bentonite makes the workability of this clay incredible.
Customers are loving the ease with which they can throw and turn this clay.
The glaze fit is excellent.
Recommended firing temperature is cone 6.
Shrinkage at cone 06 is 1.5%
Shrinkage at cone 6 is 16%
