Pottery and Glass in Byzantium

Abstract : Though pottery and glass are in some ways related, it is not clear that they share sufficiently similar conditions of manufacture, diffusion, or use to allow these aspects to be discussed in conjunction. Pottery appears to have been used in the greater quantity, or is at least found more frequently, and, while glass could well have been a luxury product, pottery practically never was such in the Byzantine world. In addition, research into pottery is further advanced than into glass.
