Pottery Collecting Buzzwords

Just starting to collect pottery?  You’ll probably run into a few new terms along the way.  Here’s a few that I hear often:

Bisque:  This is a type of pottery that has been fired once without any glaze.

Mold made:  This is when clay is pressed into a mold to create a form like a vase or even a plate.

Majolica:  A low fire glazing technique, Majolica is made by applying an opaque tin glaze that was applied to earthenware and then painting it with different colored oxides.

What other terms do the pottery collectors out there use?
