11.25 Clay Processing

Figure 11.25-4 illustrates the process flow for fire clay processing. Mined fire clay first is transported to the processing plant and stockpiled. In some cases, the crude clay is weathered for 6 to 12 months, depending on the type of fire clay. Freezing and thawing break the material up, resulting in smaller particles and improved plasticity. The material then is crushed and ground. At this

Firing Clay: Ten Basics of Firing Electric Kilns

28/05/2021 Firing Clay From Mud to Ceramic. Firing converts ceramic work from weak clay into a strong, durable, crystalline glasslike form. Ceramic work is typically fired twice: it is bisque fired and then glaze fired. The goal of bisque firing is to convert greenware to a durable, semi-vitrified porous stage where it can be safely handled during the glazing and decorating process.

Firing: What Happens to Ceramic Ware in a Firing Kiln

Think of vitrification as a process that develops in a clay body during firing. We take it far enough to produce the desired strength and color, but not so far that ware begins to warp excessively. Some applications require better stability in the kiln, others need a more dense product. Thus each person arbitrarily decides what ‘vitrified’ is for himself and his own circumstances. Some

The Basics of Firing Electric Kilns Soul Ceramics

There are two main approaches to bisque firing: low fire or high fire. Counterintuitively, in low fire, the cone number is higher up to 04 to ensure that all the carbon and other materials in the clay burn out during the first firing. This eliminates the chance of carbon burning out during the glaze firing and causing blisters in the glaze. It also makes your pieces stronger, lowering the
