Faience or faïence (/fˈɑːns/ or /f/; French: [fajɑ̃s]) is the conventional name in English for fine tin-glazed pottery on a delicate pale buff earthenware body, originally associated by French speakers with wares exported from Faenza in northern Italy. The invention of a white pottery glaze suitable for painted decoration, by the addition of an oxide of tin to the slip of a lead glaze, was a major advance in the history of pottery. The invention seems to have been made in Iran or the Middle East before the ninth century. A kiln capable of producing temperatures exceeding 1,000 °C (1,830 °F) was required to achieve this result, the result of millennia of refined pottery-making traditions. The term is now used for a wide variety of pottery from several parts of the world, including many types of European painted wares, often produced as cheaper versions of porcelain styles.

I like to know about religion too not only about food or tourist spot.

That’s the place I’ve visited before even I don’t really understand what they said because they speak german.

For me, it’s a challenge to know more about their culture. Experience is considered to be one of the life’s greatest teachers. The best feeling when you get out of your comfort zone. Try to explore things that you never tried before.

That’s the experience of Joy’s Travel
