greenware

Definition:

(noun) - A term used in ceramics, greenware is clay that is mostly dry ("leather hard"), but has not yet been fired in a kiln. At this stage, it can either be fired, joined to more clay (and then fired) or re-wetted and deformed.

Less commonly, "greenware" can also refer to a certain type of Chinese ware with a green glaze.
