The combination of clay and inclusions that makes the ceramic. Each pottery-making centre, assuming it uses different clays and inclusions (q.v.) from others, will produce pots in a characteristic fabric. Potters may use more than one fabric if they produce different types of ware, eg. cooking pots and tablewares. A fabric may be characterised by its visual appearance, by microscopy, by chemical composition and by physical properties. Fabric analysis is a key element in the investigation of provenance (see boxes, p.42, 64).
The clay body or paste of a ceramic.

With respect to grid computing, "fabric" refers to a "layer" of grid components (underneath applications, tools, and middleware). Fabric encompasses local resource managers (e.g., operating systems, queuing systems, device drivers, libraries, etc.), and networked resources (e.g., compute and storage resources, data sources, etc.). Grid applications use grid tools and middleware components to interact with the fabric. Facility A "facility" is a logical name denoting a collection of one or more sites under the same administrative domain. Facilities are anticipated to provide other grid services - especially, but not exclusively, services in support of the major applications running for whom they provide computational resources
