Manufacture: The firing of sandstone at high temperature is composed of two successive firings. First of all, the cooking of raw earth; when it is perfectly dry because the slightest humidity can burst the ceramic, in the electric oven at 980 ° c for 8 hours. This cooking makes it possible to chase away the air and tighten the grain, without totally solidifying the earth because it remains porous to allow the enamel to be applied. The enamel is baked in the electric oven, in an oxidizing atmosphere, at 1280 ° C for about 12 hours. Enamels adapted to this temperature are specific. It will be possible to open the oven below 200 ° C after a slow cooling of several hours, so as not to risk the breakage of the part
