    Hello! How should I call these pots of china?

    If there are two pots. One is china; the other is made of iron. Can I call them china pot and iron pot respectively? Thanks!

    If your question relates to the images, then the first looks like a form of stoneware [a type of pottery which is impermeable and partly vitrified but opaque], the second like glazed pottery [articles made of fired clay], and the third like unglazed pottery or terracotta.

    None are technically china, which is made from china clay and is a fine white or translucent ceramic material.

    Hi Vil,

    Thank you for your answer. I should have done the math by myself.
