Pottery is the craft of creating objects from clay, which are then fired (baked) in an oven or kiln to become hard. The word also refers to the objects. Household items such as plates, cups, saucers, bowls and dishes, jars and vases are frequently made of pottery, as are ornaments and figurines, and electrical components such as capacitors. Pottery is often glazed before firing, to make it impervious to water and other liquids, and for decorative purposes.
