The elements that go to make Quart pottery are soil, water, fire, and the potter’s skill. The transformations that the soil undergoes from the moment it is extracted from the clay-pit to its conversion into an item of pottery, ready to be place on sale, form a large and complex process that includes preparing the soil, transforming it into clay, moulding or “throwing” on the wheel, finishing, drying, firing and subsequent treatment. The following section is devoted to this process.
