Pottery is the art of giving identity to clay and shaping them into vessels. Earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain are the main types of pottery. Clay or other ceramic materials are first kneaded to ensure even moisture content and make sure there is no air trapped within. It is then shaped using hands on a potter's wheel and dried. The dried vessel is then fired inside a furnace to make it hard and durable.
