  1. Please clarify. Have you seen there glazed brick? I can make a stove on both 20 and 100 bricks. If this is not enough, I will make two ovens, three ovens or more
  2. No problem, I will make a furnace for you) And you will make the gate Ishtar) Dreams come true!
  3. I also considered the option of 3D cutting on brick. And modeling from clay on a brick. It seems to me that the one who will work on my equipment will be able to show imagination in all its glory.
  4. Thank you! You understood my idea perfectly! Here you can see some architectural solutions. But mostly they concern large manufacturers of glazed bricks. My brick production was invented for the construction of fireplaces and heating furnaces, decoration of internal walls and partitions, window or doorway, corners of the house, fence. And note, in the pictures from the Internet there is not a single brick with a picture! There is not one! I completely forgot, there is still a third option - this is hand-painted on a brick, including painting in gold or platinum. I believe that making this brick can work well.
  5. Do you want to try to make a brick yourself? Or do you want to buy a brick that is suitable for glazing? In the first case, the ideal solution would be faience, white clay without impurities. In the second case, hollow clinker is needed. This is Russian Gzhel Glazed brick does not require exterior finish and never fall off like tile. In general, you would need to ask this question 2500 years ago to the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar when he built the Ishtar gate :-)
  6. Only one glaze firing - the brick I buy is already burnt. Decal is a ceramic paint that is baked into the glaze layer. 250*120*65 mm No, I order from professionals, but you can do them yourself - for this you need to buy a special printer that can print with ceramic inks. ceramics When a person asks questions - this is good. Bad when a person does not know and does not ask questions. So do not hesitate to ask questions.
  7. Yes you are right. But this is not the main thing. Yes, these results are obtained precisely because of the design of the furnace. Each brick should be heated to the same temperature and have no differences from the rest. A regular oven will not allow you to do this - all bricks will be different. And again I repeat - the quantity, do not forget about the quantity) The furnace, which is now working for me, can hold 50 bricks.

  9. No, I do not make a brick, I do two roasting. But what's the difference? The thickness of the material does not change)
  10. You're right, decal is burned at 1600 degrees Fahrenheit. But the matter is absolutely not about the temperature to which the stove can be heated. Brick is a separate topic in ceramics. If ceramic tiles can be burned in a few hours, the brick is burned for several days. Why? The thickness of the material! Therefore, for the firing of bricks in small quantities, a special furnace is needed. No, of course, you can burn a brick in a conventional furnace, but how many pieces? I think you can do 1-5 pieces, not more. But if you need more to lay out a wall or fireplace? And if you make ten fireplaces? Can your oven do this? And if it can, then for what time?
  11. Please forgive me for my English. Theoretically, the method of manufacture is quite simple. These are two firing. 1. Firing bricks with glaze - when the glaze is applied to the brick. 2. Hot decal firing - a method that allows you to put an image on porcelain, ceramics or glass. The picture is transferred to the glaze and firing. No, we did not do it, did not have time. And I did not have this task. My task was to make this brick. The whole difficulty is to make this brick. Unfortunately, conventional ceramic kilns are not designed for this. Therefore, my friend and I had to develop my oven. It took three years to do this. Today I can make this brick. And most importantly - I can make a furnace for the production of this brick. To be honest, I want to make furnaces more than bricks)) But I had small orders while I was developing the stove. ------ Sorry for my English
  12. Thank you - I agree with your every word! My desire is for ceramists all over the world to learn how to make such a brick.
  13. Hello! My name is Alexander. I live and work in Russia and I really want to communicate with ceramists. I want to show you my products - I make glazed brick and glazed brick with decal. Please look at my work, it is very important for me to hear your opinion. Are there ceramists who make similar bricks? If so, I will be very happy to communicate! Thank you for having this forum where people communicate who are not indifferent to the craft of the ceramist.
