Biscuit is a term described as unglazed porcelain or earthenware that has been fired only once. Such ware is sometimes erroneously termed bisque in England and the United States.

Ware deliberately left unglazed include porcelain introduced in the 1750s at the Sèvres factory in France for modeling figures and groups, perhaps because it resembled marble. Biscuit was later made elsewhere on the Continent and at the Derby factory in England about 1770.
