It's a pretty good size. I started with 5 pounds of clay. Initially it was about 21 inches tall, but after the one fire, it finished not quite 18 inches. I use Coleman's 10 porcelain and fire to a high cone 7, almost cone 8 in an electric kiln. I have heard mixed results with using porcelain for raku but personally I like to experiment.

That looks to be a "large" vase??  Pretty big for porcelain!!

I've been working with porcelain lately but just doing cups.  I work with Soldate 60 clay when making large thin pieces....it's great clay for throwing large and for surviving raku/saggar/pit firing
