Rockhill Asia Visited A Ceramic Factory In Binh Duong To Inspect The Quality Of The Ceramics Product
Ceramics are made in four stages: preparing raw materials, shaping clay, decorating and glazing, and firing. The two ingredients required for manufacturing ceramics are, first and foremost, clay and glaze. Clay is collected from the river once a year for a half-month period.
Five different types of glazes are frequently used in making ceramics, with ash glaze being the most common. In the second stage, shaping clay, a lump of clay is rolled into a coil and put centered in the wheel. After that, as the wheel turning, the artist continuously forms the clay piece into the desired shape by squeezing and shaping it by using his hands. Following shaping, clay pieces are placed in kilns where the temperature is gradually raised to cause progressive evaporation. When the pieces are dry, they are individually cleaned and smoothed to remove any jagged edges.
Depending on the final product, the next stage, decorating, may be done with stickers, a carving tool, or a paintbrush. Typically, artisans use brushes to draw decorative patterns on the products. The raw product is glazed after it has been decorated. Bisqueware is coated with a layer of glaze, then artisan leaves it to dry before loading it into a kiln for the glaze firing process.
The final stage is firing it, which has an important impact on how the final products look like.
