Ceramic souvenir magnets - Režný Újezd
Handmade original ceramic magnets made of white clay.
What is a ceramic magnet?
Ceramic magnets made of white clay have a uniform shape - most often oval or square. The dimensions of the magnet are approx. 67x43 mm, the thickness is around 4 mm. On the front side there is an embossed motif according to the wishes of the visitor. Each motif is original and most often it is a motif of sights - castles, towers, mountains or other interesting tourist places, including a title or other text.
Motifs are prepared on the basis of a photograph, picture or other pattern, which is transferred by hand onto clay (scratched) to create a stamp. Each magnet is hand-cut, fired and then sealed with a dark brown lead-free glaze.
On the back side, the ceramic is coated with a 1.4 mm thick magnetic film with a magnetic pull-off force of 660 g. The firing is carried out as standard at 800°C for the first firing, with glazing at 1100°C for the second firing.
Thanks to the processing method - wiping of the contact glazed surfaces and an efficient height folding system, a large number of pieces can be placed in the kiln per firing, thus minimizing energy consumption. The magnets are packed in reusable boxes and filling materials.
