Why do people want to play with pottery? 

Pottery is an ancient art form that involves creating objects, vessels, and sculptures using clay as the primary material.

The process of pottery begins with clay preparation. Clay is obtained from natural deposits from the Earth or purchased in a ready-to-use form. It is then kneaded, wedged, and prepared to achieve a consistent texture, remove air bubbles, and make it more malleable.

The clay is centered on the wheel, and the potter shapes it using their hands and various tools. The potter pushes a pinch on the bottom that’s connected to the wheel to control the speed of the wheel. 

Once the desired form is achieved, the piece must dry before next steps. This allows the moisture in the clay to evaporate, making it firm. After drying, the pottery undergoes bisque firing. It is fired in a kiln at a relatively low temperature, which hardens the clay and prepares it for glazing. 

Glazing is the process of applying glazes to the pottery surface. They add color, texture, and a protective coating to the finished piece. It's applied through dipping, brushing, or spraying. 

The pottery is then fired in a kiln at a higher temperature. This process melts the glaze to fuse with the clay and form a glass-like surface, which is very smooth. It also further strengthens the pottery, making it durable and usable. 

After the final firing, the piece is decorated. This may include carving or adding handles, depending on the vision you have for your piece. 

Pottery encompasses a wide range of forms and purposes. It can be functional, serving as everyday objects like cups, plates, bowls, and vases. It can also be purely decorative, taking the form of sculptures and art pieces.
