When I saw someone making pottery for the first time, my inner voice told me how easy it was to create it, but I had a little idea about the hard work behind it. Pottery looked like a piece of cake to me then. It was not my first experience of witnessing pottery wheel throwing; I had watched traditional potters in my village using different types of utensils. But due to my stereotypical views, I had no idea that pottery could be learned through proper education.
During my graduation (B.F.A.) whenever I had a chance to visit the ceramics department, the view of students making pottery fascinated me and I used to watch them for hours and hours. Watching the process of pots taking shape was so satisfying and I was immediately attracted to this field of art. I decided on my future education in the field of pottery.
In my opinion, pottery is an art in which an artist gives a beautiful shape to shapeless clay on a potter’s wheel and can mesmerize everyone.
Many objects can be easily made in pottery; all the utensils with different purposes e.g., teapots, casseroles, frying pans, cup plates, etc. Broadly two types of utensils are there, the first type is used for serving and storing food. The second type is used for decorative purposes also known as non-functional pottery.
