“My thoughts on Porcelain as a material is that it is not simply “White Clay”. When used in conjunction with the right glazing techniques it can achieve a state where it visually approaches glass. Crystalline glazes often achieve this effect developed on simple economical forms.
A good analogy to the way crystals form on a ceramic piece, is the way frost forms on a window pane. Frost is water vapor gathering at particles of dust and forming ice crystals. This phenomenon will only take place when all the conditions to do so are ideal.”
