When you think of the word pottery, what images come into your mind? I know some people would think of the class they took long ago and using a pottery wheel, maybe making your first masterpiece, or possibly a friend of yours who gave you a special handmade vase. I think of some of the pottery that decorated my Great Grandmother’s home. She is still alive at the age of 100. That’s not a typo!
Pottery has many uses in a functional and artistic way and dates back to somewhere between 29,000 to 25,000 B.C. in what is currently the Czech Republic and was first fired in huge bonfires. The invention of the pottery wheel in Mesopotamia somewhere between 6,000 to 4,000 B.C. revolutionized the creation process for obvious reasons and the art form continued to evolve.
