Jingdezhen Ceramics Tour（景德镇陶瓷之旅）
Length: 0 minutes
Certificate: Finish lessons
It is difficult to think of an area of modern life that has not been touched by ceramics. Our homes are made from brick walls, held together by cement made from calcium silicates, and glass windows, also made from silica. Inside, the walls are plastered with ceramic gypsum, porcelain bathrooms are decorated with tiles made of clay and talc, and kitchens stacked with pottery and glass have decorative ceramic floor tiles. Clay pipes link our homes to the sewage system and ceramic insulators are essential in connecting them to the electricity grid. Back inside the house, that electricity flows through television sets that contain more ceramic insulators, components such as capacitors and resistors made from ceramics, computers based on silicon chips, magnetic ceramics used in the electric motors of appliances such as vacuum cleaners and food blenders, and piezoelectric ceramics used in tiny headphones and loudspeakers. Telephone calls and cable television signals may be piped to the home through glass fibers, while other kinds of glass fibers keep heat inside the walls and the roof. That heat may itself be provided by a heated ceramic filament, just as lighting comes from glass bulbs or fluorescent tubes.
