Transcript Mott Modern Plumbing The Manufacture of All-clay Body Fixtures V ITREOUS china and solid imperial porcelain fixtures are made of clay, the process of manufacture requiring not only skill but also considerable artistic ability. A brief outline of this process might be interesting to the uninitiated. The clay is first refined and thoroughly washed until it is free from all foreign matter, after which most of the water is removed from it under pressure. In this state it is moulded or cast into the form of the fixture allowing for considerable shrinkage. It is then put through a drying process which requires from three to four weeks, depending upon the size of the piece, when it is ready to receive the glaze. The glaze is prepared in the form of a heavy liquid from a special formula and by a mechanical process adapted for the purpose. After again being dried the piece is ready for the kiln where it remains for a number of days subjected to great heat, averaging 2500 degrees (Fahrenheit). The important feature in the process of firing these pieces of ware is that the intense heat fuses the glaze integral with the clay body, thereby insuring a smooth, glossy surface of a hardness unobtainable in the enamel on cast iron fixtures. It is this glaze which makes it so easy to clean vitreous china or solid porcelain ware. "r"%fPl|' 'Sip.J W\ ™ j
