glazed (Scope note)
There are instances where objects which are decorated with underglaze are not glazed, but they are uncommon. N.B. The Technique ‘glazed’ never applies to ancient Greek pottery, meaning pottery produced throughout all periods from the Aegean (or Greek) Neolithic to the Hellenistic periods. The term 'black glaze' is used for Greek pottery which is covered in a clay slip that turns a glossy black during firing. In such instances, the Technique is 'slipped' and not 'glazed', even if the term ‘glazed’ may appear in the Description to designate areas of ‘black glaze’.
