Fajance's, really, an invention from Persia but today these are made by hand from various workshops in China. What distinguishes the ordinary from fajance ware is that it does not burn as hard, usually has a porous type of goods, and have more opportunities for colors. In ancient times mostly tin or lead was used to seal the porous metal and make the glaze.
