Originally, pottery is very high in water absorption.

If you leave the drying to be insufficient, you may generate “mold” at times. Please be careful.

About Pottery

It is good to think that pottery is made from “soil”. This gives a soft and warm impression. The feel is somewhat textured and has a thickness.

Since the firing temperature is about 1800 to 2100 degrees, it becomes a porous baking. Because hardness is a little weak, a more polite usage is requested.

About Porcelain

The raw material of porcelain is “stone”. There is a hard, cold impression, but a very smooth touch is a feature when touching it.

The firing temperature is more than 2200 to 2600 degrees, and the high density is hard because it is burnt at high temperature compared with pottery. It can be said that it is easier to use than pottery.
