Earthenware is a common ceramic material, which is used extensively for pottery tableware and decorative objects. Types of earthenware: Creamware, Delftware, Faience, Tin-glazed pottery, Victorian majolica, Raku, Terra cotta. Pottery (i.e. made from clay) which has not been fired to the point of vitrification and is therefore slightly porous after the first firing. It is made waterproof by the application of slip (a liquid clay mixture applied before firing) before the second firing or the application of a tin or clear glaze. For both practical and decorative reasons, earthenware is usually glazed.
