Layered structures and associated fabrication methods that serve as the foundation for preparing high-operating-temperature electrochemical cells have a porous ceramic layer and a porous metal support or current collector layer bonded by mechanical interlocking which is provided by interpenetration of the layers and/or roughness of the metal surface. The porous layers can be infiltrated with catalytic material to produce a functioning electrochemical electrode.
