At Walker Ceramics, Feeneys Clay and Cesco our aim is to use, from Australian sources, the best quality raw materials to produce our own range of bodies, glazes and colours for all aspects of ceramic production. We have extended our clay production with special bodies for production potters, particularly plastic vitreous porcelains, stoneware’s and White Midfire all as white as Australian materials will permit.
Our Imperial Porcelain 4317 (named after Geoffrey Walker) is our world class, fully ball milled, white, plastic, translucent Porcelain for all methods of production. We also produce low temperature white casting bodies, and middle and high fire vitreous and translucent casting bodies.
New to Walker Ceramics production line are the well known Cesco Glazes and Underglazes. An extremely well known, extensive range of glazes and underglazes, they are now produced solely by Walker Ceramics in Victoria.
The colour range includes Design Colours – Liquid Colour Concentrates with the latest addition of a bright and vibrant Fire Crab Red FK25. There are 25 bright and exciting colours in the range that are superb at Earthenware and unrivaled at Stoneware. The Design Colour complement the classic Cesco Range of Underglazes – these are a pure ceramic colour ball milled with a specialist brushing medium.
For Opaque Liquid Underglazes check out our Wunder Colour Range – clay based underglazes that are like poster paint for clay. In the ceramic world’s continuous search for bright reds at stoneware we now have the Fire Crab Red, Cesco’s Bright Red, Wunder Colour Anzac Poppy Red as well as the Potters Stain Fire Engine Red FW5827. These colours are magnificent at Stoneware and very stable under a vast majority of glaze formulations.
