  • Porcelain pieces may appear fragile but actually fired porcelain is very hard material. On Mohs scale of hardness porcelain is 7 which is the hardness of most semiprecious stones as Quartz family (Amethyst, Citrine etc.) or Garnets. It is much harder than glass (glass is 5,5) or silver (2.5). Porcelain is fired on the temperature of 1240-1400C which makes it so durable and very well suited for jewellery.

    During this workshop I will be introducing various types of clay, how to work with clay, firings, various decorative techniques and colouring. Students will think about the connections of clay and other materials and how their samples could relate to the body.

    Fired porcelain pieces will be available to pick up (or sent, £4.5 P+P) within 1 week.
