The art form "ceramics", also called "pottery", is simply defined as the shaping and then firing of a clay body, at a high temperature to create a permanently hard object. To do so, one needs to select the right ceramic clay and tools with which to shape their piece.

Pottery clays (also known as ceramic clays or moist clays) are all made with a water base and need to be fired in a kiln to vitrification to become permanent. The primary types of clay bodies are earthenware and stoneware which typically turn red, brown, white or a variation of these when fired.
