The production process of ceramic objects
Shaping and drying
The object is first shaped from clay. Depending on the basic shape of the object, we employ different techniques such as potter’s wheels, molds and templates. The piece is left to dry for three days at 22°C (71.6°F).
Next, the surface of the clay object is smoothed which gives it its finished appearance. The pieces are fired in a kiln at a temperature between 980°C (1796°F) and 1000°C (1832°F) and are then ready for glazing.
Glazing and second firing
Glaze is applied to the surface of the fired piece using a spray gun. Finally, the glazed piece is fired in the kiln for six hours at a temperature between 1050°C (1922°F) and 1100°C (2012°F).
