As one of the essential utensils on the dining table, ceramic tableware is also regarded as a unique symbol of dining places such as restaurants, hotels, banquet halls, and even your own home. Every brand has its own culture and characteristics, how to design the tableware that the brand wants?
Personalize the tableware with your own brand's artwork or logo for a truly personal and unique look. Restaurants, resorts, caterers, B&Bs or country clubs can create your own unique ambiance; with greater attention to detail and superior resolution quality.
So how do we design our own tableware, what details can we pay attention to?
If you want to participate in designing your own unique patterns, you can have a graphic design team as assistants in the factory. After receiving the design draft, the design team will check whether it is feasible, and may make fine-tuning according to the model requirements.
How do 3D models work?
Due to the limitation of ceramic tableware manufacturing process, ceramic products are easy to deform when making straight lines. Therefore, many products are designed to be curved to avoid this problem, so that the surface of these ceramic products has many changes. In addition, the handles, mouths, buttons and other parts of ceramic products are generally bonded in mud. Due to the post-glazing firing, this seam will become smooth due to the adhesion of the glaze layer, and will not form a sharp turn of the metal like ceramics. It is this smooth connection that makes the ceramic product more like an object. In addition, many ceramic products have reliefs on the surface and are decorated with lines or patterns. When doing three-dimensional modeling of ceramic products, the modeling method should be selected according to these characteristics.
In addition to showing the general appearance of the product, the 3D model also needs to pay attention to its details, which are two important criteria for determining the quality of model creation. Ceramic products have their own characteristics. Whether it can express the characteristics of ceramic products is the key to the success of a model.
Typically, our designers use sophisticated computer modeling software to design and create casting molds (master molds) from which working molds are produced for the molding process. After some necessary adjustments, the model of the ceramic tableware can be confirmed.
Choosing and setting up a ceramic tableware model is the first step in designing your own tableware, and glaze is also an important part of making your tableware unique.
There is a popular technique called "activated glaze", which refers to the natural changes in the surface glaze of porcelain during the firing process. There are several reasons for reactive glazes:
1. Unique tableware raw materials
The mineral raw materials used are complex, contain a variety of trace elements, and have many colors. In raw materials, even if the same minerals are different from each other, their physical and chemical properties will have certain differences.
2. The fetus and shape of ceramic tableware
The types are different, the ingredients are different, and the properties are also different. The influence of the fetus on the kiln is mainly reflected in the color, opening and high temperature fluidity of the glaze.
3. The chemical composition of the glaze on the ceramic surface
Reasonable glaze composition is the basis of active glaze. Through scientific analysis, there are more than ten kinds of chemical components and more than 40 kinds of trace elements, which are very conducive to the occurrence of active glaze phenomenon.
