The term ceramics is the collective name for products made of fired clay. There are various types of ceramics, depending on the type of clay and firing temperature.
We have chosen to work mainly with porcelain and stoneware. We bisque fire both types of ceramics at about 950 °C. This is followed by glaze firing at about 1260°C. Porcelain and stoneware are both clays that vitrify at peak temperature: the molecules fuse, and the ceramic material becomes sealed, waterproof, and highly resistant to breakage.
