Pottery Articles of Interest
I remember getting my first home. My mother brought, as a house warming gift for me, my old seashell collection.
As you enter my home there is no question about what I like to collect, there is pottery of all types sitting in every nook and crannie.
I wanted to know just how this object of my fascination was made, so I started reading all the books on pottery that I could find at the library.
Now, I had somewhat of an idea of what went into the history and making of pottery and I wanted to see for myself, so I started looking for and visiting pottery and ceramics shops and museums.
Pottery workers have all these strange words like kickwheel.
Tools that pottery workers use have strange names too.
Now, as I continue my search for the next perfect piece of pottery to add to my collection, I can appreciate it's beauty, knowing all the steps it took to make it.

All About Clay
Have you ever come up with a good idea while working with your handmade pottery or ceramics and thought that you would like to share it with others? You have? Well, why not send it to us and we will add it to the tips page for all to see.
Handmade pottery can be a very gratifying hobby that produces fun and satisfying results. For many people it's an enjoyable release that is created by working an inanimate mound of clay into a beautiful work of art that you made through your artistic abilities.
The best way of starting out is to take a few lessons. You will probably waste quite a bit in materials when you first get started. Figuring out how to truly make handmade pottery correctly and shape into what you want it to be can be quite an ordeal. The different tools that a normal shop will have can be fun to try. You will soon see which ones you like to use the most and then when you are ready you will know which ones to buy.
With the help of the internet, you can now purchase most if not all of your ceramic and pottery tools and supplies online. We are located far from any well supplied dealers and yet working with reliable ceramic and pottery suppliers online has allowed us to recieve most of our orders within a timely manner.
When you get all set up, just enjoy the hobby and have fun at it. Some people get pretty serious and start selling their creations at craft fairs and small stores, but others just like to create items for themselves, relatives, and friends. Whichever kind of handmade pottery you desire to endeavor, enjoy the hobby and have fun doing it.
