The Traditional Yixing Zisha Processing

29.03.2020· The clay is left to age for at least 3-6 months, depending on the type of the ore, the aging period could be longer. This step is important to enhance the plasticity of the clay block. During this time organic matter in the clay bodies degrades and dissolved salts come to the surface. After the clay reached its desired plasticity there isn't much point to age it further, as it doesn't

Methods and Techniques of Hand-Building

Coils of clay can be used to build bowls, vases and other forms in various shapes and sizes. Keeping the fingers flat, form the clay into sausage shapes, then roll into ropes 1/4 to 1/2 inches thick. Make a shallow dish with the pinch pot method and turn up-side down to serve as a foot of base. Place a coil along the edge of the foot. Dampen the fingers and join the next coil to it, with a

PROCESS to REWORK good clay that becomes too dry to use. Processing self-dug clay follows below and self-dug clay is shown in the photos to the left on this page. To reprocess hard clay it must first be totally dry. There is no need to break up dry clay. PRECAUTIONS: Be sure it has no plaster chips in it - plaster causes pop-outs when bisque fired.

Introduction to Clay Methods

The process of making something out of clay can be extremely simple as well as very complicated. Even thought the clay can take any shape given to it, because of stress, improper balance of weight, incorrect methods of joining, or improperly constructed walls, it may not always hold. Even if you do get a piece to hold and dry in the desired form, you have to make sure you haven't sealed any

12.09.2013· Shaping Processes: The shaping processes can be divided according to the consistency of the mixture: (1) slip casting, in which the mixture is a slurry with 25% to 40% water; (2) plastic-forming methods that shape the clay in a plastic condition at 15% to 25% water; (3) semi-dry pressing, in which the clay is moist (10% to 15% water) but has low plasticity; and (4) dry pressing, in which the
