Sept-Dec 2016

  

Vermiculite is normally used in gardening to absorb water and take in fertile for plants. The mixture of vermiculite and clay make a lighter ceramic piece, I tried to work out the proper proportion of water, clay and vermiculite for modelling. 

蛭石一般广泛应用在园艺种植当中,是一种吸收水份及泥土养分的良好材料。同时它也让同等质量的但混有蛭石的粘土的重量更轻。我尝试着改变水、粘土以及蛭石的比例去寻找适合用于制作样本的合理方案。

The test turns out that the liquefied clay(left) took twice more time to dry up the water while water evaporated way quicker in the mixture with vermiculite(right).  

 

​实验证明纯液态粘土(左)比起混进蛭石的液态粘土需要花多一倍的时间令水分蒸发。
