Ceramic Materials Laboratory

Here,you can learn the required theory concepts in order to understand how ceramic materials behave. 

 

Contraction probes in porcelain.  Practical tests for learning the properties of clay bodies in their different processing stages.

 

Orton pyrometric cones.  Glaze formulations starting from raw materials and frits.

 

Aventurine glazes containing haematite crystals.

 

Large surface crystals of zinc silicate (2ZnO.SiO2)

 

Copper reds in electric kiln with silicon carbide as local reducing agent.

 

Lizard skin glazes. Crawling as an intentional decorative effect.

 

Matte glazes with a high content in barium carbonate.
