Glossary of Ceramic Raw Materials

LEPIDOLITE - lithium feldspar - HT alkaline flux - used for thermal shock bodies and matching glazes. Contains fluorine, with associated problems. Toxic in inhalation. LITHIUM CARBONATE - Li2CO3 - powerful AT alkaline flux, especially with soda or potash feldspars. Promotes hardness and re-crystallization in LT glazes.

Disposal of old glazes

 · If the glaze melts well but has an ugly colour try adding 5,10,15,20% lithium or 10,20,30,40% barium carbonate, you will get a range of good glazes. I expect to get a good glaze from four test firings and it will have cost you very little as well as knowing the environment is not put at risk.

Petalite

Petalite. A lithium aluminum silicate mineral (more simply a lithium feldspar) that is commonly used in clay bodies. It is valuable because it provides an insoluble source of lithium (lithium carbonate is soluble) and has the highest Li2O:Al2O3 ratio of any natural mineral. Lithium is a strong alkaline flux and is effective over all temperature ...

Pegmatites of the Black Hills, South Dakota

Feldspar. According to Connolly (1929), feldspar came on the Black Hills market in 1923 when freight rates dropped and permitted competition with eastern supplies. The principal use for feldspar was in the ceramic industry. Other uses included enameling for metal, glazes, and abrasives in soaps.

The Lure of Lithium

 · The 4-3-2-1 is a basic, transparent, no frills glaze. When fired to cone 8 on porcelain, there was some crazing within an opaque matte finish. With the addition of 3% LiCO 3 in Lithium A, or 21% spodumene in Lithium B, the result is very similar in surface and color, but without crazing. Rather than working as simple one-to-one substitutes for other fluxes, lithium …

Feldspar

Notes. Theoretically speaking, the term ''feldspar'' refers to a family of minerals with a specific crystalline presence. However actual feldspar powders are made from crushed crystalline rock containing a mixture of aluminum silicates of sodium and potassium (with minor amounts of lithium or calcium). They normally contain 10-15% alkali (K 2 O, Na 2 O) and melt well at medium to high ...
