Firing is described as the process of transforming a clay body into pottery or porcelain by exposing it to heat in a kiln. The necessary temperature varies according to the type of Ware, usually ranging from about 800°C for earthenware to 1450°C for oriental true porcelain.

Likewise, it is a process of heating clay, glaze, enamel or other materials  to the temperature necessary to achieve a desired structural change. Most ceramics are fired in a kiln to temperatures ranging from 1600?F to 2300?F.

There may be several firings before the manufacturing process is complete, according to the type of ware.
