Pastes Elaboration

Composition and quality of raw materials is what mainly determines the aspect and well-finish of the product, for this reason, Barreiros makes a careful selection of those.

In the porcelain formulation, the main component is the kaolin or china clay, a raw material which Barreiros exclusively obtains from the region of Burela (Lugo), differentiated by its high quality with respect to kaolin from other deposits.

Depending on the method to be used for making the pieces (plaster casts, potter's wheel, etc.), the paste components will be included in different percentages, as well as the water used for the mixture.
