Trip to China
I have just got back from a week in China. It was all work related. I was trying to find a new supplier for some 600x600 Porcelain floor tiles for one of my Customers.
The factory's were just enormous, one of them was producing 20,000 sq mtrs per Day.
They all use roller kilns these days, and the last picture shows 600x600 tiles just coming out of the polishing machine at the end of the production line. I must admit I was not a big fan of China, we didn't get much free time in two days I went around 10 Factories and a trade show,
with an overnight stop in Hong Kong on the way back.
I'm back on the Blog again and Why? Because The Chinese have landed on the dark side of the moon? No, because I have time, time ...
OK here are all the elements needed to build the kiln. I had some 3mm ceramic paper left over from building my large gas kiln 2 years ago. ...
Earlier in the year one of my daughters sent me a link to an article in Vogue magazine which stated "Pottery is the New Yoga"...
