Faience is a pottery technique where a terracotta body is covered by a glaze which includes tin oxide to give an opaque white ground. This technique was originally developed in the Middle East and often used in Europe to imitate Chinese porcelain before the secret of the method of making porcelain was discovered.
The technique was much used in Portugal for making tile panels painted in blue and referred to as azulejos.
