It is thought that the first kilns were holes dug in the ground. As around 10,000 BC the clay bricks were made. In the Middle Ages iron was being melted and break line furnaces were in use.

The potter's wheel was invented in Mesopotamia around 5000 BC and was also used by the Etruscans in Romans. Pottery from clay in Asia is dated to 14,000 BC.

In the Bronze Age around 3000 BC when people begin to use the potter's wheel the industry was born. In this SUI Dynasty in China Potters first began to make porcelain around 700 A.D. because porcelain was so popular and expensive, led glazes were invented to make ordinary pottery look white like porcelain. Color glazes originated in Asia and were copied in Europe, especially blue which had a big effect on English ceramics.

The Greek blend of black and reddish-brown with heroic figures is a hallmark of their art and is the finest representation of ceramics as art in history. Clay was readily available in Greece which had a high iron content and gave the clay on orange red color. Black paint made of alkali potash, silicon clay, and black ferrous oxide was bonded to the pottery with vinegar. The Greek pots were fired around the thousand degrees C. In Greece, the potter and the painter worked together but were usually not the same person.
