陶藝 Ceramic Art
Ceramic art (陶藝) is art made from ceramic materials, including clay. It may take forms including art ware, tile, figurines, sculpture, and tableware. While some ceramics are considered fine art, some are considered to be decorative, industrial or applied art objects. Ceramic art can be made by one person or by a group of people. In a pottery or ceramic factory, a group of people design, manufacture and decorate the art ware. Products from a pottery are sometimes referred to as “art pottery”. In a one-person pottery studio, ceramists or potters produce studio pottery.
