Faience Antiquities

Egyptian faience is a non-clay based porous crystalline ceramic composed of crushed quartz or sand, with small amounts of calcite lime and a mixture of alkalis. Faience was cast in molds to form objects and small vessels. A glassy surface luster was created by surface vitrification of a soda lime silica glaze. The most common color, a bright blue-green was made by adding a copper pigment.

Smaller ushabtis are often inscribed "the Osiris" followed by the name of the deceased. Hemka literally means priest and Nefer means good or perfect. Osiris is called "Osiris Hemka" in a sacred text where he begets a son with Isis (who is flying over him as a hawk while he reclines on a lion couch). The inscription may read, "The Osiris, the perfect priest" or more likely reads, "The Osiris" followed by the name of the desceased, "Hemka Nefer."
