Elutriating

Elutriating
This process is performed in order to gain the soil suitable to produce the Grayish Celadon. After mixing various minerals with potter’s clay, the mass should be dissolved under water. Then, heavy things such as stone, sand, etc. are first sunken. Very fine-particle sediments are gained through repeated processes. Afterwards, such sediments should be again sunken and the remnant water should be poured off, and the moisture remaining in the sediments should be dehydrated properly. It is suitable clay to produce the Grayish Celadon.
