Re: [sig] Stoneware or soapstone
- Milord, stoneware is actually a kind of ceramic; a
very, very tough ceramic with lots of silica in it and
a very high firing temperature, such that regular
pottery kilns sometimes cannot fire hot enough to make
stoneware. The silica melts and bonds to make it much
tougher than the regular clay-based ceramics, more
like stone than pottery. Or at least, that was what I
was brought up calling stoneware.
