Hi all,

Good stuff, I got my first ceramics batch in last week.
weather and light has been terrible so have not had a chance to shoot a full set of pictures.

But here is one:

Yes very much!
It might needs some minor tweaks and improvements. (will share with Nancy)

The glazing does add some new limitations to designs, but all the more fun to discover Smile

Thanks for the virtual love btw Smile

looks great in glossy white goodness.

whats the diameter roughly of the skinnier parts? any opinions on what you think the strength of the material is? hard to tell by the cup i received.

The "raw" diameter is roughly 3mm, after glazing it's about 4.3-4.4mm
So a glaze layer of about 0.6-0.7 mm.

The ceramics looks and feels very strong at this size.
I would say comparable to industrial ceramics, but have not done any drop or hammer testing yet Wink
I still need it for an exhibit Wink

It looks fantastic!

Does it sounds like ceramics also?

That image is so smooth and sharp, it was hard for me to believe it wasn't a render. Smile

@Virtox congrats on a great start w/ ceramics. Your design is something I'd be proud to have around my home.
