The production of ceramic objects is one of the oldest crafts of man. The molding process is divided into three main stages.
First, the preparation of ingredients.
The next stage is the molding of the part, followed in most cases the drying and firing, glazing, painting by hand and the second firing.
Like many other materials, ceramics may be formed through various methods, depending on the desired production volume.

The conditions and the temperature required depends on the material.
