Quick Reference


A ceramic fabric in which iron oxide in the clay has absorbed as much oxygen as possible during firing. It is produced when vessels are fired with an ample and continuous supply of oxygen, usually resulting in a white, buff, orange, or red colour. Pottery can be partly oxidized (indicated by colour differences between the surface and core of the fabric) or unevenly oxidized (indicated by colour differences on the surface of a vessel).
