From Material to Form to Function - The path of a Ceramic Vessel

Ceramics sometimes might seem like it has hit a new level of popularity, but being that it has been around almost as long as our species and takes a plethora of forms around the world, following a vessel from its raw materials to its finished state reveals the real depth and breadth of this rich and nuanced medium.
