Pottery is made by forming a clay body into objects of a required shape and heating them to high temperatures in a kiln which removes all the water from the clay, which induces reactions that lead to permanent changes including increasing their strength and hardening and setting their shape.
Today time honoured methods are still used to create fine stoneware pottery. Journey with us through the manufacturing process as we show you what goes into making your garden pots and glazed containers.
