Glossary Words

Parian ware

A type of bisque porcelain. It was named, by Minton, after Paros, a Greek island renowned for its fine-textured, white marble of the same name. It was also contemporaneously referred to as Statuary Porcelain by Copeland. Parian was essentially designed to imitate carved marble, with the great advantage that it was prepared in a liquid form and cast in a mould, enabling mass production. See bisque or biscuit
