Procedures

This thicker slurry is used to adhere these two pieces together. They cut the holes and unmold the ensemble. The toilet is now molded.


                                         


                                         


                                         


Then to obtain a perfect appearance, they remove the little fillet formed by the surplus adhesive slurry.The toilet is air dry for 36 hours, then in a warm-air dryer for 12 hours. Finishing must be impeccable.


                                                  

                                         


They carefully sand the surface to make it perfectly smooth. A vacuum draws up the dust. Then, with a jet of compressed air, dust and debris are blown away. Bowls are hand-painted in a special room.


                                             


                                              


As for the water tank, they are painted by an automated robot.


                                             
                                          


This truck carries the different parts to the final fabrication stage- baking. The toilets remain in this oven at the very high temperature of 2150  ºF for 23 hours. It takes this long to focus the clay and silicone.


                                       

                                        

                                           


The paint then becomes hard and shiny, and it is all done.The toilets and the different bowls now take on shapes more elegant than in the past. But, the fabrication of each one of them will have the same basic construction steps involving 45 pounds of slurry, and almost 4 days of labor.
