What is Traditional Pottery

Traditional Pottery:

Pottery has been an important part of human culture for thousands of years. From prehistoric storage jars to ceremonial bowl, pottery has played a key role in innumerable human endeavors. Pottery is generally considered to be containers made from clay. “Pot” is a term used for any number of container forms. Both words derive from the Old English potian, “to push”. When we consider how the potter pushes as they throw the clay on the wheel, it is easy to see how the process got its name. The term “pottery” may also be used as an adjective with some objects, such as small figurines. (About.com Pottery)
