Art and Science: The Role of Silicon Carbide in Developing High Temperature Crater Ceramic Glaze Recipes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It is widely recognized that smooth and glossy glazes are often used by both ceramic makers and artists. However, in contrast, rarely do artists use techniques to develop the crater and foam glazes for decorating artistic artwork. Most students of ceramic art schools depend on readymade smooth and glossy glazes, which cause more traditional artistic results. This experimental study aims to develop some applicable crater and foam recipes for ceramic glazes by using an amount of Silicon Carbide (SiC). This study has helped to elevate sculpture ceramics artwork quality by providing a variety of glazing textures and decorative recipes.
