The Panarea service table is made entirely of glossy glazed ceramic moulded by casting.
This production method consists in pouring the clay slurry into a plaster mould, which absorbs the water to create a thick layer of clay.
Once finished, the piece is left to dry completely and then baked at more than 1000°, creating the so-called “biscuit”.
At this point, the biscuit is airbrushed in the colours required and baked again at about 980°. If the glazing is suitable, the piece is ready.
The term casting refers to the act of filling the clay mould.
Clay slurry is a fluid mixture of clay.
