Process

After the ceramics have been allowed to dry naturally and most of the water has disappeared, the products can be fired for the first time - the biscuit firing - at 950°C.

Then one or more layers of glaze are applied, by immersion, dipping or spraying. After this, the pieces are fired for the second time at about
1200°C.
Depending on the size, the normal production time is 6 to 10 weeks.

Mobach Ceramics uses clay from the Westerwald, Germany. It is a natural product, which is excavated, purified and mixed (enriched) with minerals according to the company’s own recipe.
The composition of the clay and the kiln temperature are chosen in such a way that the shard sinters (vitrifies) and becomes watertight.
NB. If the plant holders or large vases are placed on a soft base (carpet or wood), there must be enough ventilation to prevent rotting due to the formation of condensation and/or spills during watering.
