Are Cone 5/6 Ceramics Correctly Referred To As "stoneware"?

Recommended Posts

Now that I have my own studio and electric kiln, I'm moving from cone 10 clays to cone 5. This new world of mid-range clays, glazes, and firing is like starting all over again.

 

I'm uncertain about whether cone 5/6 ceramics are correctly referred to as stoneware. Pretty sure that the term "earthenware" refers to low-fire ceramics, but I await the wisdom of those who know better about these things. :-)

Thank you, Neil. My main concern with the terminology is how I refer to my pottery, say, when I'm posting items on Etsy or describing pieces to buyers at shows. But I am still in that gray area working both with cone 5 and 10, where I have to be careful of which pieces I will glaze fire and which will be taken to my old membership studio for cone 10 firing!
