Little Things Mean A Lot #53
Whitewares are a class of ceramics that are usually used for sanitary purposes such as toilets, bathroom fixtures, and tableware. Ceramic tiles are sometimes included in this category also. Whiteware ceramics usually have a white body, as the name would suggest, and are often glazed. Many whitewares are based on porcelain compositions, which usually contain kaolin, feldspar and flint, and are highly vitrified to achieve a smooth surface and low porosity that is easy to clean.
