What is the difference between stoneware and earthenware clay? How is each used and made? (Quora)[edit | edit source]

‘It has to do with firing temperatures. Because of the type of clay and other ingredients in the “clay body” (the mix of ingredients in a clay for pottery), different clays can be fired to different temperatures and no higher. If fired to higher temperatures they start to bloat, then slump and melt and then melt into a puddle of glassy foam-like rock. The temperature right below when the clay started to melt down is called the “maturing temperature”.

Earthenware is one of many terms for a clay that matures at lower temperatures.

Stoneware (both mid range and high fire) is a clay that matures at higher temperatures.

On a scale of zero (being not fired) to ten (melted), terra cotta or earthenware is about a four while translucent porcelain is around eight.

earthenware is also called terra cotta, low fire clay, faience, creamware, raku, yellowware, lusterware, tin-glazed and other terms.’ (https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-stoneware-and-earthenware-clay-How-is-each-used-and-made)
