Pottery is the art of shaping wet clays and then heating them under fire thus transforming them chemically to hardened clays. Pottery is done by potters in Islip Terrace to make wonderful pieces which are either functional objects or are decorative pieces. The decorative pieces are designed and decorated with colorful glazes, which not only increase the beauty of pottery, but also act as protective coats.
The shape to these pieces of pottery is given by the potters either by their hands or some medium like coil pot, pinch pot, etc. There are different glazing techniques which are used by these potters in Islip Terrace to coat an object of pottery with protective glazes. Pottery is one of the oldest art forms.
