It is important to have in depth understanding of the physical and chemical process clay goes through during drying and kiln firing. Having this understanding will help in avoiding clay and firing defects with your project and can help troubleshoot many of the problems you experience with your pieces such as cracking, breaking, exploding and glaze defects.
CLAY: THE DRYING AND FIRING PROCESS Many potters, especially beginners, use prepared clays without much thought.

Then, the pottery is called vitreous, meaning it can hold water. History Potters have been forming vessels from clay bodies for millions of years. When nomadic man settled down and discovered fire, the firing of clay pots was not far behind. Pinch pots, made from balls of clay into which fingers or thumbs are inserted to make the opening, may
How to Pit Fire Clay at Home; The first thing you need is a pit! Dig a hole big enough to hold your clay pots and lots of fuel. If the soil is damp you may want to line your pit with cardboard.

Firing at temperatures above these risks melting the material-it's real metal and will melt just like conventional metal when heated to its melting point
He may take the broken piece of clay that collapsed and make an exquisite vessel from it. As the potter completes the vessel, he looks upon it with great joy. He can envision what it will be after the firing and finishing are done. This process is rich in spiritual lessons. Sometimes we know what area the Potter is trying to change in our lives
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.
This Video will take you on a short journey through the manufacturing process of our bricks and pavers. From piles of dry clay, through the mixing process, the extrusion process, cutting, trimming, and through to firing. To produce a clay, bricks Natural raw Clay and Shales are first crushed and ground. Then the ingredients are formed using the
