Earthenware

Description

General

Earthenware is defined as glazed or unglazed nonvitreous clay-based ceramic ware of medium porsity. Colors may be red, for bodies with a high iron oxide content, to white, for the talc and triaxial formulas. The body is fired at comparatively low temperature, producing an opaque product that is not as strong as stoneware or china. The product may be glazed or unglazed.
