Once humans discovered that clay could be dug up and formed into objects by first mixing with water and then firing, the ceramics industry was born.


As early as 24,000 BC, animal and human figurines were made from clay and other materials, then fired in kilns partially dug into the ground. Almost 10,000 years later, as settled communities were established, tiles were manufactured in Mesopotamia and India. The first use of functional pottery vessels for storing water and food is thought to be around 9000 or 10,000 BC.


Over time ceramics have come to include some of the most incredible design concepts. When fused with functionality within the home, ceramics can deliver brilliant results.
