Global Earthenware Market is classified on the basis of types, applications and geography. Earthenware refers to a range of articles made from ceramic materials and used for a number of purposes including tableware, pottery, and decorative objects. The blend of materials in earthenware varies, depending on the region, but it generally includes minerals such as quartz and feldspar, along with ball clay, a very plastic natural clay, and kaolin, or china clay, a more mineralized form. These materials are ground so that they have an even texture, and they are worked on a wheel or by hand into the desired shape. The earthenware is one of the oldest materials that used in pottery. Earlier earthenware was available in red tones but now with advances in technology it has evolved to include other colours such as white and buff color.
Earthenware is not translucent and it can be easily chipped as it’s very light and more porous than stoneware. The earthenware pottery is popular because it is beautiful and hand made. Earthenware is also called low fired clay because it is normally matured at low temperature. Earthenware is firstly shaped and fired at a temperature of 15 ºF and is then glazed, before it is finally decorated. The factors that propel the growth of the Earthenware Market include increasing demand for various applications such as home decorations, tableware, and so on.
