Faience is a stronger form of earthenware, due to the addition of kaolin, the clay that is essential to the production of porcelain.  This results in a soft white color, unlike standard earthenware.

Faience is dishwasher safe, but is recommended in the microwave for reheating purposes only, not cooking.  Further, a different clay is used in the production of bakeware pieces which makes them oven safe.
