Vitrified China is composed of 40-50% kaolin, 30-40% quartz and 20-30% feldspar. The difference with other Vitreous China is the firing process. Our Vitrified China is fired at a firing temperature of approximately 1,000°C during the first firing. The second firing, also known as glaze firing, is done at about 1,200 °C and is crucial for the hardness of the glaze.
Other Vitreous China manufacturers fire at a firing temperature of approximately 1,200 °C for the first firing. The glaze firing, on the other hand, is at about 1,050 °C. Thereby, the glaze does not become as hard and robust as with our Vitrified China.
Our Vitrified China thus obtains excellent properties:
- Complete density of the body and thus no water absorption possible
- Handcrafted, each item is unique
- Natural reactive glazes burn out differently and allow the colors to vary deliberately
- A particularly good edge impact resistance is guaranteed
These properties also have a positive effect on the use of Vitrified China in daily gastronomy:
- Tableware can be cleaned in the dishwasher
- A large part of the articles can be stacked
- Vitrified China can be used in the microwave without any problems
- Vitrified China is oven-safe, but the dishes should not be placed directly from the fridge into the hot oven
