As common ceramic bodies mature their particles come into closer and closer contact and bond more and more. The earlier stages of this happen during sintering, the latter during vitrification. Densification is accompanied by changes in the mineralogy and form of individual particles and melting of flux particles (and subsequent dissolution of others).
