Everyday Ceramic Items

  • The Ceramic Society of Japan


Ceramics have been used since ancient times in a variety of everyday items that need to be thermally resistant. With regard to thermal properties, priority is placed on low thermal expansion characteristics. A variety of scientific and technological achievements in ceramics have been incorporated. Everyday items that have been contributing to society, as well as to products used in the jewelry field, are introduced in this section.
