Ceramic Art

Ceramic art, including clay, is art made of ceramic materials. It can take shapes such as arts, tiles, figurines, sculpture and tableware. Ceramic Art, in particular visual arts, is one of the arts. It is one of those plastic arts. While some ceramics are regarded as fine art, pottery or sculpture, some are regarded as decorative, industrial or applied objects of art. Ceramics in archaeology can also be regarded as artifacts. Ceramic art can be produced by a person or a group of persons. A group of people design, manufacture and decorate the art ware in a pottery or ceramic factory.

The word "ceramics "comes from the Greek keramics, which means "pottery, "which comes from keramos meaning "potter's clay. " Most traditional ceramic products have been made of clay (or clay mixed with other materials), shaped and heated, and tableware and decorative ceramics are still produced in this way. Ceramics is the art and science of producing objects from inorganic, non-metallic materials through the action of heat in modern ceramic engineering. It does not include glass and mosaic made of tesserae.

There is a long history of ceramic art in nearly all developed cultures, and often ceramic objects are all the artistic evidence left by disappeared cultures, like the Nok in Africa more than 2,000 years back. Ceramic cultures are notably Chinese, Cretan, Greek, Persian, Mayan, Japanese and Korean, as well as modern Western cultures.

Ceramic art elements, on which different degrees of emphasis were placed at different times, are the shape of the object, its decoration through painting, sculpture and other methods, and the glazing found in most ceramics.
