Rock Garden Pottery has been offering high-quality pottery, handmade ceramic vases, pots, and other creations to the public for over two decades. Pottery is an ancient craft of creating beautiful pieces using clay. The different types of pottery that are commonly created include earthenware, porcelain and stoneware. Technically, the art of creating any fired ceramic wares that consist of clay is called pottery.
The clay that is used to form these shapes are very moldable, enabling the potter to manipulate it into different shapes and sizes. Once the potter is satisfied with the molded clay, it is placed in a kiln to be heated to a very high temperature. This helps remove all the water content in the clay and makes it stronger and harder as well as retain the shape it was molded into. Clay pots can be decorated either before placing in the kiln after removing it from the kiln. Interestingly, before molding into any shape, the clay needs to undergo a thorough kneading process to make sure that the moisture content is evenly distributed throughout the body. If there is any air trapped within the clay, this also needs to be removed. It is usually done with the help of a vacuum plug or by wedging. After the clay has been properly kneaded and de-aired, it is shaped into a pretty shape and placed in the kiln for the magic to work.
