www.clut.it. As you are well aware, for over a thousand years, porcelain represented the foundation of ceramic discipline, being a main driving force for world ceramic research. After the invention of hard porcelain in Germany, the settlement and development of porcelain manufactures became a sign of prestige all across Europe, e.g. the Königlich-Polnische und Kurfürstlich-Sächsische Porzellan-Manufaktur in Meissen was built in 1710, the Kaiserlich privilegierte Porcellain Fabrique in Wien in 1718, the Imperial porcelain factory was founded in St. Petersburg in 1744. Close control of firing regime in the industrial kilns became feasible after having introduced the pyrometer by Josiah Wedgwood and the pyrometric cones by Herman August Seger. Unification of Germany under the Bismarck’s tremendous effort and subsequent development of a system of technical universities led to substantial contribution to inorganic chemistry as well as to science of porcelain. Further, foundation of the American Ceramic Society in 1898 increased the importance of American manufactures on ceramic science.

This book has the main objective of offering readers a window into the entire historical development of porcelain, culminating in Europe with the unveiling of the mysterious composition of Chinese porcelain, due to the effort of Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus and Johann Friedrich Böttger, who succeeded discovering the porcelain’s receipt and its production technology.

Besides the astonishing historical events, this book describes the main types of raw materials used in the porcelain production and invites to enter into the world of the modern porcelain and its principle technological operations, as well as to technology of porcelain for restorative dentistry, which is a recent phenomenon.

The text of the book is accompanied with the very rare colored figures related to porcelain history, series of schemes, production lines and photographs obtained from modern technological process as well as sets of unique vintage porcelain pieces, produced in different porcelain factories over the world.

Authors hope that this book will complement your book collection as well as will be considered as a valuable source for the libraries in your home universities.
