However, due to the addition of bone powder, Bone China has become very hard, tough, more wear-resistant, and more durable than ceramic tableware.

Bone china tableware without inlaid metal can be heated in a microwave oven. Bone China, originated in England, is made by adding animal bone powder into ceramic raw materials. The higher the content of animal bone powder, the worse the plasticity, so it can't be drawn by hand. It needs to be made with plaster mold, trimmed and polished, then burned at 1220 ℃, then glazed, and then burned on the sticker for the third time. Therefore, it has high regularity and high temperature resistance, but it cannot be fired directly on an open fire. As for glaze, the firing temperature of Bone China is generally low, so lead-free glaze is used instead of lead-based glaze. Because bone china tableware is overglaze color, the material of pigment is very important.
