Why Ceramics?

Ceramics is the art of making things from clay.  There are many ways to build things with ceramic clay, and objects made from clay can be used for functional as well as decorative purposes.  Ceramic clay goes through various stages, and must be fired (hardened with heat) before it is finished.
