Clay is a raw material that has many uses across the different industries. The principal use of clay at Mukondeni Village is making of pots, which are based on traditional paintings of Venda and Tsonga people and are sold to tourists, businesses and local people. Although the knowledge of using raw clay for making of ceramic pots is known to many throughout the world; very little scientific studies have been conducted to establish the basic characteristics of clays for this purpose. The main… 
Composition and Technological Properties of Clays for Structural Ceramics in Limpopo (South Africa)
This study evaluated the potential of raw clays from the Mukondeni region for structural ceramics and pottery based on traditional firing techniques. Physical properties were identified by particle
Characterisation of smectite-rich clay soil: Implication for groundwater defluoridation
Groundwater is a widely used and affordable source of drinking water in most of the rural areas of South Africa. Several studies have indicated that groundwater in some boreholes in South Africa has
Leaching of Potentially Toxic Metals (PTMs) from Two Nigerian Clays and Related Clay Pottery Used Locally as Foodwares
There is presently lack of data on composition of potentially toxic metals and their leaching from clay based foodwares into food. Therefore, in present study we evaluated the leaching of cadmium,
3D-printed clay-based ceramic water filters for point-of-use water treatment applications
TLDR
A 3D printer, Ultimaker 1, initially intended for plastic-based printing, was adapted for use in the manufacture of ceramic filters, which can find applications in water treatment for consumption at the point of use.
