Photo Ceramic Processes
I was at the Nelson-Atkins museum of art the other day and I saw a piece of Chinese pottery from the 16th century. The color was as bright and as vivid as a piece of 1970's Pyrex.
I also thought to myself, hey, that's a pretty good cyan.
Fuji has a photoceramic process called 'Fuji Photoceram' as seen here.
I'm interested in ways that photographs can be made in ceramics and thus made highly permament. If that can be applied to color... well shoot, I'm a happy camper.
What really defines a photoceramic process??
Are there genuine methods of producing photographs in ceramics, or is it usually just the application of some other kind of image forming layer atop it? (like applying an emulsion, or a carbon transfer, etc.)
They use photograph on porcelain technology at grave decoration. There are many companies that will explain the technology and the services at web. ? had been posted a detailed post to f 295 forums least 3 years ago.
It can be carbon and burned and make hundreds of years stability or laser printer with special color ceramic powders to be carried on plate and later burned and sintered to the surface.
Do you start to grave business ?
There was chinese british porcelain trade at 1800s and china was doing all the milimeter detail paintings by hand but the britons by silk printing.
I think you can learn the recipe from british museum and transfer your decoration on toilet cups and sell at the antique fair for 10 dollars as kansas porcelain since 2011 :)
cobalt is responsible from blue color , you can buy cobalt powder and dilute and than inkjet print.
color gum printers uses paints that contains all the exotic chemicals in the world.
Thanks Umut, sounds exciting! Toilets, death... hahaha
So the key to a true photoceramic process is burning or baking the image in?
blue ceramics , chinese , dutch and britain manufactured are famous. and the turkish iznik ceramics and abbasid area baghdad and damascus ceramics. Early Islamic ceramics dated 6 to 10th century are the most expensive ceramics in the world. And there is mayan blue and egyptian blue also , these are nepheline cyenide chemicals and its color is Turquise.
high heat and burning the organics.
I think you must read ceramic glazes hobby sites and need of oxidizing and reduction atmosphere. look at the tiffany and zsolnay glass and ceramic glazes.
Burning organics, oxidizing and reduction atmosphere... that makes a lot of sense. Thank you Umut!
But how to create the image? That is the trick.
