Ceramics handcrafted peaces by Ellena Videnova.
A ceramic is a solid material comprising an inorganic compound of metal, non-metal or metalloid atoms primarily held in ionic and covalent bonds. Common examples are earthenware, porcelain, and brick.
Crystalline ceramic materials are not amenable to a great range of processing. Methods for dealing with them tend to fall into one of two categories. Either make the ceramic in the desired shape, by reaction in situ, or by “forming” powders into the desired shape. After that use sintering to form a solid body. Ceramic forming techniques include shaping by hand (sometimes including a rotation process called “throwing”) and slip casting, tape casting (used for making very thin ceramic capacitors, e.g.), injection molding, dry pressing, and other variations. Details of these processes are described in the two books listed below. A few methods use a hybrid between the two approaches. Above all is the methods that Eville Soe use to make its ceramic peaces.
