Unique work


Technical Note

There are a few different types of clay that fall into the category of earthenware; red terracotta and several other naturally occurring clays that vary in colour from pale yellows to whites. The most significant aspect of earthenware clay is that it remains porous when it is fired, relying totally on the glaze to make it both functional and impervious to water. The maximum firing temperature of the glaze firing ranges from 1060℃ to 1160℃. Because there is no vitrification between body and glaze, objects made in this way are more fragile than stoneware and porcelain. One advantage of using earthenware is it is possible to obtain a much more vibrant and brighter colour range, as lots of colours burn out above 1100℃.
