In the templated grain growth (TGG) method for the grain-oriented ceramics, a method using single crystal particles with cubic shape as templates were investigated. The rolling-extended method was used to align the cubic templates to a direction in matrix. A cubic ceramic of 2 mm on a side was used as a pseudo cubic template, in order to observe the behavior of the cubic templates under the rolling extension. By the compressive deformation, the cubic ceramic turned its [111] direction to the
