Word of the Week: Bisque

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately?), I’m not blogging about soup today.

No, the bisque we’re talking about is a type of porcelain that is, simply enough, unglazed. It’s fired in a kiln at a certain temperature and is typically quite porous.

Bisque is easy to spot because it’s often white and scratchy (not smooth), which are both the result of not being glazed.

Here’s a picture of a bisque figurine:

Do you prefer the soup or the figurine?? 😉
