Transcript

  • 1. Ceramics from Start to Finish Jingdezhen, China
  • 2. The process starts with a pile of clay.
  • 3. Clay and water are mixed together to create slurry. The slurry is created in pits dug into the ground.
  • 4. The slurry is then pumped into a series of machines. The mixture fills up the areas between the blankets.
  • 5. The extra water is then squeezed out and recycled back into the slurry mixing pits.
  • 6. Stiff donuts like shapes of clay are created by the machines.
  • 7. These clay shapes are then fed into an extruder machine. The machine makes the clay into spaghetti like cylinders.
  • 8. The clay is then cut into large sections and then stored.
  • 9. The clay is given to potters who throw forms on the wheel.
  • 10. Sometimes pots have to be thrown in many sections and then assembled on the wheel.
  • 11. Once assembled, the pots are set outside in the sun to dry.
  • 12. Or sometimes they are stored on shelves to dry.
  • 13. Once dry, the forms are given to artists to paint. Sometimes they paint small forms.
  • 14. Sometimes the forms are very large.
  • 15. For some pieces the designs are created through the use of stencils. These designs will be permanently attached to the forms once they are fired.
  • 16. Finally, the pots are loaded onto a cart…
  • 17. … and then rolled into the kiln to be fired.
