Topic: Are 'vitrified' and 'vitreous' same / sililar words or conjugations of each other
Posted: Wednesday, November 13, 2013 11:01:55 PM
These are words used when it comes to describing the finish and quality of china and crockery.
I would like to know whether these words are conjugations of one another and what they mean exactly individually)

My understanding:
Vitreous: glassy translucent finish on a surface such as porcelain
Vitrified: non-porousity of a ceramic due to the processing it has undergone

So can a vitrified ceramic ware not be vitreous

Thanks
