The Qualities of Fortessa Fine Bone China

Fortessa® fine bone china combines US-design with English technical know-how.

Our manufacture uses the original, classic English recipe of 2 parts bone ash, 1 part feldspathic rock
& 1 part china clay, plus additional ingredients to help fuse decoration (if any) & the final over glaze.

These materials are mixed together to create the base material (soft-paste) for a piece of Fortessa fine china.

The first or biscuit firing is carried out at extreme temperature of between 1200C-1300C.
This causes the body ingredients (50% ash, 50% rock & clay) to vitrify or fuse together.
The result is a piece of bone white china that is waterproof (known as biscuit).

At this stage, decoration can be added to the bone white biscuit.

Finally, a Fortessa formula, clear, protective glaze is applied. The bone china is subjected to
a second glost (or glaze) firing at a temperature between 1000C-1100C. Biscuit, decoration &
final glaze fuse into one permanent piece of fine china.

Fortessa® has invested in technology to ensure that underglaze decoration remains sharp.

Fortessa fine bone china offers the discerning restaurateur the following aesthetic & commercial qualities:
