Ceramics ( grog ) is the simplest and cheapest of the clay-containing material . It is easily subject to modeling, not the maximum firing temperature (you can use the oven easier ).
Harder ware .
Even more difficult - china. (I will not describe all the technological features , I can only say that the material should take into account shrinkage during firing and the change of proportions , as in height shrinks more than the width).
And if we went to an Armenian woman masters , here , for example (in my concept - a masterpiece , especially considering the size ).
