The Birth of our Ceramic Product

Customer Artwork
Preparation of Casting Mold
Grounding the clay (comprises mainly of kaolin & quartz) & mixing with water
Filtering of clay to eliminate impurities
hydraulic press of the solid mass for the basic shape of product
filling the liquid paste to the casting mold for the basic shape of product
Eliminating the sharp edges, drips and clean the mass
Dry the mass and then first firing
Bisque product is then glazed
Second firing
Decoration / Decal applying on the semi-finished product
Third firing
Decoration (eg. Hand painting) can be applied under the glaze, in the glaze or on the glaze.
Special effect could be done by modifying the production process


What are they?


naturally a blue-gray white
made from kaolin (extremely white, friable sedimentary rock that melts at high temperature, quartz (milk like mineral that acts as stabilizer) and feldspar (a cement-like mineral agent that binds and makes the magma impermeable)
has a lower-heat first firing and a high-temperature glaze firing
creates a vitreous, glass-like product able to withstand dishwashers and microwave ovens

Bone China

naturally a translucent white or ivory-white
contains up to 60 percent animal ash (mostly ox bone)
high-heat first firing and a lower-heat glaze firing
softer glaze (one that will show knife cuts after time and adopt a patina


natural colour tends toward gray
usually heavy
like porcelain, is a vitreous body, thus leak-proof and non-absorbent, even in an unglazed state
made from varying mixtures of kaolin and ball clay, feldspar and flint
resistant to chipping, it can go into dishwasher, microwave, even the conventional oven


made from clay (clay less refine than china clay)
fired at relatively lower temperatures
chips easily and will absorb food particles or liquid
can be produced in more dimensional shapes and constructions
it takes glazes, paints and decoration easier


porous red clay
fired at a low temperature

The confusing terminology

Ceramics - generic term for any ware made from earth-produced clays, mixed with water, that are processed through firing or baking

Bisque - layware that has been fired once, but not glazed

Enameling - metallic oxide powder fired at low temperatures over pottery that has already been glazed and fired

Glaze : transparent coating that protects decoration, makes the clay body non-porous and/or add colour

High-temperature decoration - nhancements created from a limited source of pigments that, when fired at a high temperature, combine with a transparent glaze to melt and fix the colours in place

Low-temperature decoration - nhancements created from a larger list of pigments placed on a pre-fired glaze and fixed by means of a third firing at a low temperature

Over-glaze - decoration applied to the surface of a piece that has already been glazed and fired, and is then set with a low-temperature firing

Under-glaze - ecoration applied directly to the bisque before glazing and then covered with a protective coating
