Abstract

There are various examples off traditional Malay pottery such as Labu Sayong, Buyung and Terenang. Other than those potteries, there are one more pottery which is Kelantan traditional pottery that is Mambong. This pottery is less popular by other people especially outside Kelantan. It is important to carry on this research so that the Mambong pottery will not disappear and to ensure that it is sustained for nest generation. The objectives of this research is to compare between local product which is traditional Mambong pottery and technology product which is slip casted Mambong pottery. Then to characterize their density, strength, physical appearance, shrinkage and phase. Traditional Mambong pottery has been brought from the potter at Mambnog village and slip casted Mambong pottery is made by using slip casting method. X-ray diffraction (XRD) is used to identify the difference phase between raw Mambong clay and fired Mambong clay also for traditional Mambong pottery and slip casted Mambong pottery. Density of sample is measured by using Archimedes Principle. Modulus of rupture (MOR) is used to measure a specimen’s strength before it ruptures. In this review, phases of the raw and fired Mambong clay shows a bit changes but for traditional Mambong pottery and slip casted Mambong pottery shows a very huge changes in XRD pattern. Due to the presence of iron in clay, the colour of Mambong pottery changes from brown to reddish-brown after firing process. The dry shrinkage and fired shrinkage for traditional Mambong pottery is higher than the slip casted Mambong pottery. Slip casted Mambong pottery has higher strength compared to traditional Mambong pottery. In conclusion, by using slip casting technique, density, strength, physical appearance, shrinkage and phase of Mambong pottery can be improved.
