water 1800 degrees loop carving tools needle tool wire cutter wooden shaping tool modeling tools noun: A naturally occuring, fine-grained, firm earthy material that is plastic when wet and hardens when heated, consisting primarily of hydrated silicates of aluminum and widely used in making bricks, tiles, and pottery. Glaze noun: A coating of colored, opaque, or transparent material applied to ceramics before firing or after a first firing mold glass + clay + fluxes + color Types of clay clay tools noun: Any of various hard, brittle, heat-resistant and corrosion-resistant materials made by shaping and then firing a nonmetallic mineral, such as clay, at a high temperature. knives bullet proof vests INDUSTRIAL FINE ART sponge rubber rib tools Minerals Iron

leather hard - the condition of the raw ware when most of the moisture has left the body but when it is still plastic enough to be carved or joined
greenware-pottery that has not been bisque fired Average clay is 25% water
If it's too thick in some spots it may cause cracking in others
As water leaves the piece, shrinking occures
Because of humidity drying is completed in the kiln water evaporates completely
crystals form and rearrange
virtification occurs-Hardening, tightening and finally, partial glassification of clay. Vitrfication: gives the fired clay its characteristic hard, dense, durable and rocklike properties. It is accompanied by shrinkage in the clay THIS CHEMICAL REACATION is a part of creating Engineering
