The outstanding property of glass is its transparency. Although all of the single-crystal oxides are transparent, most ceramics are formed from sintering powders and are polycrystalline; and polycrystalline materials are opaque or translucent because light is scattered at the grain boundaries and is not transmitted through the material. Glass, on the other hand, is homogeneous, does not have grain boundaries, and thus is transparent. Silica is the basic ingredient for glass. Although it is the least expensive of all raw materials, other oxides such as sodium oxide (soda) and calcium oxide (lime) are added to the silica as fluxes to reduce the firing temperatures.

Basic process tools for plastic jiggering. rotating mold to form one surface, whereas the opposite surface is formed when a soft plastic mass rotates under a contour tool, as shown in Figure 4-8. This technique lends itself to producing round or oblong shaped objects such as dishes and hollow ware. 4 CASTING Slip casting uses a liquid vehicle, usually water, to transport the powders during forming. The slip, which is about the consistency of pancake batter, is poured into porous plaster of Paris molds to remove the water and thus allow compaction of the powders.
