Abstract    The work was confined on the synthesis and characterization of porcelain body by incorporating 25% rice husk ash as a substitute of quartz. Three different calcination temperatures (700, 800 and 900oC) were chosen for the conversion of rice husk (RH) to rice husk ash (RHA). True density measurement and phase identification of RHA was conducted to ensure the quality of raw material. Calcination at 900oC-3 hours provided the preferred quality of RHA. Green samples for the porcelain body were prepared by a homogenous mixture of clay, feldspar, quartz and RHA, followed by densification at 950, 1050 and 1150oC for constant soaking time of 1 hour. The effect of calcination as well as sintering profile on the densification of porcelain body was evaluated. Finally physical, mechanical and morphological characterizations were done. The investigation revealed 1050oC as the optimum sintering temperature for 25% quartz substituted product.
