Ceramics Journals

A ceramic may be a solid material comprising a compound of metal or metalloid and non-metal with ionic or covalent bonds. Common examples are earthenware, porcelain, and brick. The crystallinity of ceramic materials ranges from highly oriented to semi-crystalline, vitrified, and sometimes completely amorphous. Ceramic' comes from the Greek word sense ‘pottery’. The clay-based domestic wares, art objects and building products are familiar to us all, but pottery is simply one a part of the ceramic world. Nowadays the term ‘ceramic’ features a more expansive meaning and includes materials like glass, advanced ceramics and a few cement systems also. Earthenware is employed extensively for pottery tableware and ornamental objects. It’s one among the oldest materials utilized in pottery. The clay is fired at relatively low temperatures producing a rather porous, coarse product. To beat its porosity, the fired object is roofed with finely ground glass powder suspended in water and is then fired a second time. Faience, Delft and majolica are samples of earthenware. To form porcelain, small amounts of glass, granite and feldspar minerals are ground up with fine white kaolin clay. Water is then added to the resulting fine white powder in order that it are often kneaded and worked into shape.. Decorative glazes are then applied followed by further firing.
