Today, the term is commonly used to describe a material used in pottery. The earliest recorded ceramics were the result of various mixtures and base - combinations, including clay. The resultant non-metallic and inorganic solid base is now a common sight in art ware and the domestic and industrial segments of human development. The twentieth century witnessed the design of amalgamated, new ceramic materials that are still used extensively in the manufacture of semiconductors. Ceramic engineering, as we know it today, is advanced and involves state-of-the-art processes. The material is inert and inorganic, with a crystalline oxide base. The resultant product is always brittle, but strong in compression. Ceramic is able to withstand very high temperatures and chemical erosion and survives well even in a strong caustic environment. Traditional raw materials that go into manufacture of ceramic including kaolinite, silicon carbide, tungsten carbide and aluminum oxide or alumina.

HISTORY OF CERAMICS Reflecting on the history of ceramics involves a clear understanding of the two related branches, technology and aesthetics. Ceramics technology has developed sophisticated material, over the years, for greater aesthetics. The initial hand-rolled coils took no time to evolve into fuel efficient glazes that were developed in special kilns. The aesthetics of the material developed parallel to the
