Need Help Choosing a Teapot?
Learn about the Difference Between Bone China, Porcelain and Fine China.
Are you confused about the different types of tableware such as bone china, porcelain, earthenware, and fine china? This is probably the most often asked question that we receive from our website guests at The Teapot Shoppe; "How do I choose a teapot?". To better explain this we need to start at the beginning. Many cultures around the world started with kiln fired clay, more commonly referred to as pottery. The simplest form of pottery is earthenware, which includes anything that is kiln-fired at a low temperature. (600 1200 degrees). This type of pottery is commonly used for home use and the more refined pieces can be mistaken for china.
The ancient Chinese were responsible for the introduction of stoneware, a much sturdier form of pottery due to the fact that it was fired at a much higher temperature. (2500 degrees). Additional ingredients were added to the process such as kaolin and salt to make a more heat resistant product. Europeans began making stoneware in the 17th century and this technology is still used today for products needing durability.
After the Renaissance, when Italian craftsmen started using a higher quality of clay (kaolin or china clay ), they began to experiment with different techniques for making pottery. This is when Porcelain was born as a result of purer ingredients matched with higher temperature techniques.
Of course, Bone China is
considered the most expensive and refined pottery. Thanks to English
craftsmen, who realized the benefit of adding calcium phosphate to
porcelain, we now enjoy the fine white, translucent English Bone China that has been popular for the last two hundred years. English bone china
is still produced today by highly skilled craftsmen who know that these
popular, classic pieces are in high demand and last for many years.
