Please could you help me with some advice on slip casting in bone china. I wish to make large vessels 75cm high & 50cm in diameter , and as thin walled as possible, in slip cast bone china.

Is there any reason why this is not possible. I would like to be aware of any stumbling blocks before spending money on materials.

This is a medium I would like to work in , I have had some experience in ceramics through a three year GAD art course I did in England working in stone ware & terracotta.

I live in rural France now & find it difficult to get information on this subject.

I would be most grateful for any advice you may have to offer.

Thank you RM
