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).

 

First firing
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.
