Untitled[edit]

I have begun to expand this article as part of a general project of linking all the articles referring to pottery decorated in tin-glaze. Marshall46 13:19, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

No mention of Ming Dynasty?[edit]

Shouldn't this be in there?68.107.83.19 06:46, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Why Ming Dynasty particularly? This is sufficient: "Delftware inspired by Chinese originals persisted from about 1630 to the mid-eighteenth century alongside European patterns." Marshall46 (talk) 22:39, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Marl[edit]

(1) Marl is a type of clay, for example Eturia marl. (2) Earthenware is a type of ceramic, \3) Occasionally found description of earthenware clay needs proper interpretation, it means a clay body that when correctly fired forms earthenware, (4) saying Marl is rich is calcium compounds is more accurate than lime, which is CaO. Although oxides are listed in XRF results they are not found discretely in Marl, or for that matter in other clays. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.153.170.162 (talk) 12:08, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

The mention of marl in the article is verified. You give no source for your statements. Wikipedia is not the place for original research or an editor's point of view. Marshall46 (talk) 20:20, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
The edits by the editor were not original research or point of view - rather they improved the article by giving a more correct description. If correctly quoted from the cited book then its author has a limited understanding of the subject. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.154.153.114 (talk) 21:25, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
