When you dive into the world of antiques and collectibles, you will find out how things are made. Here’s some of the words that I’ve picked up over the years about how pottery is made:
Greenhouse—this is the place where pots are kept to harden before they go into the kiln.
Feathering—this is an effect that’s obtained by moving a feather through wet slip decoration.
Salt glaze—this is an effect by throwing salt into the kiln when pottery is being fired. The salt vaporizes during the firing and a fine orange peel surface is left on the pottery.
What kinds of words have you run across when you are out at your favorite place to shop?
