Pottery is an ancient art form. Using special combinations of natural materials, pottery has been perfected through the ages into the spectacular forms we see today. Potters use different kinds of clay to achieve different results. For instance, porcelain china is made from clay that has a very low amount of impurities in it. This means that once fired, china hardens into a kind of glass and appears somewhat translucent. It also weighs substantially less than other ceramic pottery. Because of these properties, china is used to make high-quality serving ware as well as decorative vases, doll parts, character jugs, figurines, and other sculpted collectibles.
