No man ever wetted clay and then left it, as if there would be bricks by chance and fortune.
~ Plutarch

Historical Context[edit | edit source]

"The art or craft of the potter, the skill of creating ceramic items"-in other words, making things out of mud. With pottery, objects (sometimes useful) are shaped out of clay and then placed in an oven and subjected to high temperatures. The resulting product is extremely brittle but is airtight and more-or-less impervious to corrosion, oxidation, infestation, and other decay. The earliest pottery objects found include jugs and containers to hold liquid or grain. And some really ugly statuettes.
