Glossary:

Glossary: retort

A vessel in which chemical substances are heated for distillation or decomposition. Usually made from glass.

Glossary: earthenware

Pottery made of clay which is fired at a relatively low temperature. Earthenware is often semi-porous, meaning some liquid or air can pass through it. This can be altered by treating the pottery with a glaze.
