  • burnishing - Making shiny or lustrous by rubbing with a tool that compacts or smooths.
  • Early Cypriote - Refers to the period from about 2300 to 1900 BCE on the island of Cyprus. The art of the period is characterized by flat painted or incised terracotta figurines, vessels with scenes of daily life modeled around their outer rims, and the dominance of red-polished pottery.
  • sherds - Limited to fragments of pottery or glass.
  • slip - Fine clay which, when mixed with water, results in a fluid with a creamlike consistency, used in casting, glazing, decorating, and repairing ceramic wares; in its natural state, it contains sufficient flux to be used for glazing and decorating without the need of additives. For ceramic glaze with a high content of slip, use "slip glaze."
