Pottery man made from old clay pots

Pottery has been around since the beginning of time because of the need to have plates and bowls to eat out of.
Another main use was containers for storage of foods, liquids, and dry goods.
Potters would dig clay, wet it and work it to get the air bubbles out and put it on a kickwheel which would spin the mound of clay in a circle while the potter, with wet hands, would use pressure to shape it into a pot or bowl.
A glaze that was made from minerals was painted onto the dried piece, which was then put in what is known today as a kiln, but back then was called an oven or fire pit, and baked for many hours using a very hot fire.
The glaze would melt and when cooled, would make the piece non-porous.

Pottery is used for is just about everything.
As you can see driving through neighborhoods, pottery and ceramics add to the beauty in and around our homes and gardens.
Whether it is inside, by the pool, on the deck or in the garden, pottery adds a lot of beauty to our lives.

Now days, a flower pot can be used for just about anything, from a gift giving container, to storage or even a garden ornament.
A good example is made by stacking and gluing pots together to form a column and then gluing a fifteen inch drip plate on top, resulting in the creation of a very nice bird bath.
And the best reason of all to have a pot is still the old stand-by, to grow a plant in.

Have you ever come up with a good idea while working with your handmade pottery 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 from Youtube. 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.
