“Clouded” decoration consists of a clear lead-fluxed glaze with spots of transparent color added, such as green, yellow, blue, gray, or brown. This is similar to “Tortoiseshell” decoration, which consists of a brown speckling under a clear lead-fluxed glaze.
The genre for this stylistic element depends on a combination of decorative technique, color, and element.
