    (Materials Research Society, 2017-04-09) Reedy, Chandra L.; Vandiver, Pamela B.; He, Ting; Xu, Ying; Wang, Yanyu; Chandra L. Reedy , Pamela B. Vandiver , Ting He , Ying Xu, and Yanyu Wang; Reedy, Chandra L.; Xu, Ying
    A group of traditional pottery workshops in Sichuan Province, China, produce a unique coal-clay composite ceramic that is fired using a similarly unique kiln design and two-stage firing procedure not seen in any other ceramic tradition. Here we report on field and laboratory efforts to better understand this unusual ceramic material and technology, the functional advantages as cookware, braziers, and large storage vessels that include high strength and high thermal shock resistance, and the cultural context that supported the creativity and experimentation needed to develop such an innovative technology.
