A Field of Clay Touched by the Genius of Man Becomes a Castle

Pottery is clay that is modeled, dried, and fired, usually with a glaze or finish, into a vessel or decorative object. Pinch pots, made from balls of clay into which fingers or thumbs are inserted to make the opening, may have been the first pottery. Coil pots, formed from long coils of clay that are blended together, were not far behind. The civilizations of ancient Egypt and the Middle East utilized clay for building and domestic use as early a 5000 B.C. By 4000 B.C. , the ancient Egyptians were involved in pottery on a much larger scale. The ancient Chinese produced black pottery by 3500 B.C. with round bases and plaited decoration. Closer to 1000 B.C. the Chinese used the potter’s wheel and developed more sophisticated glazes.
