"It is great that there is a porcelain being produced in New Zealand which has the qualities of whiteness and translucency I require for my work. It stands up to the demands of firing at high temperatures. I have used it for large sculptural works as well as fine thrown tableware and it performs extremely well."

Raewyn Atkinson


"What was a big surprise to see how well the high-fire Porcelain threw and then fired.  The colour response is beautiful and a couple of my regular glazes which craze normally fit like a glove.  Very translucent though and the real surprise for me is how stable they remained in the firing with NO distortion.  One bowl was sitting on a shelf that broke in the test kiln and was at about 20 degrees of level yet remained round.  My regular stonewares would have sagged and distorted way out of shape. I can’t see any factors that need improving with this fine material!"

Neil Grant - Otago Polytech


“After working with a number of white clays in recent years I have now changed the whole studio to Mid-Fire Porcelain made by Primo Clays. It is a completely universal clay. The body throws well from small delicate pieces through to bottles of over a metre. It is versatile and we use it in its finest translucent form through to large paper clay structures.

It is extremely stable and supports a wide range of glazes including the crazed glazes I am currently developing. In fact it has solved a number of my firing problems and I am very happy to recommend it.”
