Faience Antiquities

Egyptian faience is a non-clay based porous crystalline ceramic composed of crushed quartz or sand, with small amounts of calcite lime and a mixture of alkalis. Faience was cast in molds to form objects and small vessels. A glassy surface luster was created by surface vitrification of a soda lime silica glaze. The most common color, a bright blue-green was made by adding a copper pigment.
