Ceramics are just another example of the diversity of hemp. Hemp has been used for centuries in different ways, including in building products and ceramics. Hemp ceramics are eco-friendly too. The clay in hemp ceramics is infused with hemp fibres, thus the name ‘hemp ceramics’. The process of adding hemp fibres is know to strengthen the clay making the ceramic product super strong. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wordsmith 0 Questions 177 Answers 0 Best Answers 361 Points View Profile wordsmith 2020-06-27T17:57:35-04:00Added an answer on June 27, 2020 at 5:57 pm Making hemp ceramics are also the same as other forms of pottery. As long as you got the right materials, ingredients, knowledge, and skills, then it would not be that difficult to make. Hemp is a crop that is a carbon-negative, and its fiber is one of the strongest. Adding it to ceramics make it durable and great for the environment. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Melody 0 Questions 190 Answers 0 Best Answers 385 Points View Profile Melody 2020-06-21T20:09:19-04:00Added an answer on June 21, 2020 at 8:09 pm A bit of research and the right supplies and you can add hemp into your ceramics easily. The hard part is the ceramics, not the hemp. Hemp has not been outlawed everywhere in the world, so it has been used outside the US for hundreds of years. It’s great that ceramics can be strengthened with hemp fibers in the US now, too! 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp azure619 0 Questions 31 Answers 0 Best Answers 86 Points View Profile azure619 2020-04-26T19:15:39-04:00Added an answer on April 26, 2020 at 7:15 pm Probably similar to doing other forms of pottery if you have the correct starting ingredients? I believe if you look back in time hemp has been used like this before but it’s obviously been a while since it was outlawed for so long. Hopefully it finds many more uses like this! 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 292 Answers 0 Best Answers 603 Points View Profile amanda.tolar 2020-04-21T13:33:38-04:00Added an answer on April 21, 2020 at 1:33 pm As long as you have a basic foundation of ceramics knowledge and skill, it is not difficult to incorporate hemp into your work! Hemp flowers, leaves, fiber, or rope can be added to your ceramics prior to them being fired, or affixed to the finished product for extra embellishment. If you have an understanding of how to create the raw clay for ceramics, I wouldn’t imagine it would be too hard to incorporate hemp pulp or fibers at that stage of the process, either. However, personally, I have only used ready-to-use clay, so I can’t vouch for the difficulty of that. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Bill 0 Questions 3 Answers 0 Best Answers 27 Points View Profile Bill 2020-03-03T10:52:45-05:00Added an answer on March 3, 2020 at 10:52 am Hemp is incorporated into the ceramics to create stunning twists on the ceramic pieces. Also, to build materials and strengthen a variety of products. It is one of the naturally most durable fiber. The reason is that hemp plant fiber is super strong. The hemp in ceramics is not only sustainable and natural but also available easily across the world. Furthermore, hemp fibers are well-known for their ability to strengthen anything. There are several ways of using hemp in making ceramics. Hemp fiber, hemp cord, or hemp pulp is used in making ceramics. Using any of these ensures using a sustainable and eco-friendly ingredient in the ceramics. Either the hemp pulp, fibers is mixed into the clay as an additive or use hemp cord to create macramé style pieces. In ceramics, the hemp is used when water, powder, and clay are mixed with the hemp fibers to create a blend of hemp ceramic. Then it’s covered in the glaze and heated in the kiln. The resulted ceramics are waterproof and are used for a wide range of purposes. Hemp ceramics are beautiful and eco-friendly. Using hemp in ceramics means participating in a long earth-made and natural ancestry of art. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Moogdummy 0 Questions 174 Answers 0 Best Answers 365 Points View Profile Moogdummy 2020-04-15T22:57:32-04:00Added an answer on April 15, 2020 at 10:57 pm I’ve heard of a company that makes concrete out of hemp by combining a limestone based binder with it. It’s called Hempcrete. Seems pretty easy in theory. -1 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
