Welcome to Pottery Shorts, brought to you by The Potter’s Round Table, the topic for this episode is What Happens to Clay in a Firing?
If you have fired any pottery in the past, you will know that when we fire, the clay gets stronger and easier to handle. When we fire clay to the rated cone, the clay vitrifies and becomes a stone-like ceramic material. This Pottery Short episode will explore what happens from a scientific perspective. Phil gives an easy-to-understand explanation of how the clay changes in a firing. Enjoy the show.
