BISQUE - Cutting

ca: BESCUIT – Tall

es: BIZCOCHO - Corte

Bisque cutting: if the piece is shaped like a pot or plate it is impossible to cut, as the pressure of cutting through its different densities and shapes will break it. Cutting flat pieces of bisque, like tiles, can be done using a tile cutter and there are two ways of doing so; by hand and by using an electric cutter. The electric cutter can also be used to even off rough parts and round off corners.
