The molding process of a ceramic dental cuspidor in Tecno cer occurs by casting.

A liquid clay mixture is poured into the molds and after a pre-established setting period the mold is opened. Inside, the liquid material has released the water to the porous material of which the mold is made.

The spittoon now appears formed but still soft.

This will be followed by the drying and firing of the finished and carefully checked artefact.
