Ceramics are inorganic and nonmetallic materials that are made solid through the application of heat and subsequent cooling. Clay was an early material used to produce ceramics through the process of pottery.

Properties and qualities

Ceramic materials are generally hard and corrosion-resistant, while remaining brittle. Most ceramics are also good insulators and can withstand high temperatures. Due to its hard surface, ceramic is easily decorated and therefore often used in the manufacture of crockery such as plates, dishes cups and vases.
