High Temperature fired stoneware with a salt-glaze.... "White Salt-Glaze Stoneware has a distinctive white or pale creamy appearance caused by the ground flint which is added to the clay body before firing. The glaze has a distinctive ‘orange peel’ texture. Pieces are often very finely potted and feel extremely light in weight."
