Ceramic art is a form of plastic art in which the artworks are created using clay, alumina, and other ceramic materials. This broad art category includes forms of artistic poetry such as clay sculptures, figurines, tiles, and tableware. If you look at them from an archeological standpoint, ceramic artworks can be seen as artifacts or relics.
As an art form, ceramic art is part visual art, part fine art, and part plastic art. However, ceramics can also be considered applied arts, industrial, or decorative objects – especially when referring to sculpture or pottery. The art itself can be created by an individual artist or a group of people.
