In the long history of human culture, to say what culture is almost with the growth of Chinese civilization, “ceramic culture” is no exaggeration. For nearly two thousand years, the influence of human civilization on the development of the Silk Road, porcelain is a very important cargo in the process of its development. In ancient times, ceramics were to the king and the general, down to the peddler, home more or less will have the existence of ceramics.
What we often refer to as ceramics are actually three types of wares – pottery, stoneware, and porcelain.
Pottery, which is made of clay or a similar fabricated form after firing, has a very long history, dating as far back as the Neolithic period. Stoneware and porcelain, are based on earthenware and are formed by calcining at high temperatures, usually above 1200°C, to make the object more compact, and then applying a color glaze on the outside.
Porcelain has developed along with Chinese civilization for thousands of years and has developed a variety of shapes, colors, and glazes. In describing a piece of porcelain, we can use decoration, color glaze, and shape to describe it. Among them, the glaze color better highlights the exquisiteness of porcelain. Color glaze porcelain glaze must be more than 1250 degrees Celsius high-temperature calcination, in order to reveal its unique charm.
What’s the color glaze?
There are three ways to divide the color glaze.
First, according to the firing temperature classification, divided into the high-temperature color glaze (about 1300 ℃), medium-temperature color glaze (about 1200 ℃), and low-temperature color glaze (about 1000 ℃). If 1250 ℃ is the boundary, divided into high and low two.
Second, according to the nature of the flame after firing is divided into oxidation flame color glaze, and reduction flame color glazes two.
Third, according to the firing after the appearance characteristics of classification, can be divided into monochrome glaze, color glaze (flower glaze), crackle glaze, matte glaze, crystalline glaze, reactive glaze, etc.
However, in general, the higher the temperature, the fewer color glazes are available. This is why most color-glazed tableware or home decor on the market are stoneware materials.
