Bone china is usually thinner, and the glaze is smoother than porcelain china. It is made the same way as porcelain china but includes an extra ingredient, bone ash.
Bone ash is a white powdery substance and the byproduct of incinerated animal bone. It gives the body of the plate a unique milky white color.
In making bone china, calcified bone is used as a refractory material and the firing temperature is lower. It adds translucency to the body of the dinnerware and makes the dish stronger by making it softer.
