Si-Ti-C-O fibre-bonded ceramic material was synthesized from pre-oxidized Si-Ti-C-O fibre with an oxide layer 400–600 nm thick, by hot-pressing at 2023 K under 50–70 MPa. The interstices in the Si-Ti-C-O fibre-bonded ceramic material were packed with an oxide material which existed on the surface of the pre-oxidized Si-Ti-C-O fibre, and the oxide material formed a small amount of the matrix phase (⩽10 vol%). At the fibre-matrix interface, aligned turbostratic carbon, which was oriented around the fibre, was formed during hot-pressing. The existence of the interfacial carbon layer indicated the Si-Ti-C-O fibre-bonded ceramic material to have a fibrous fracture pattern with high fracture energy. The Si-Ti-C-O fibre-bonded ceramic material showed excellent durability even at 1773 K in air, because a protective oxide layer is formed on the surface at a high temperature (above 1273 K) in air. Moreover, the Si-Ti-C-O fibre-bonded ceramic material almost maintained its initial strength in the bending and tensile tests, even at 1773 K in air.
