Pottery originated before the Neolithic period, with ceramic objects like the Venus of Dolni Vestonice figurine discovered dated back to 29,000–25,000 BC. The word ceramic is coming from a place called Kerameikos, the potter’s quarter in the ancient Greece. This form of art lies between sculpture and painting and has been part of culture all over the world since prehistoric times. The main material used by potters is clay, which originates from silicium. Clay is classified in 3 main categories based on their contamination: fireproof clay, pottery clay and coarse clay. Our products are made using the purest fireproof clay to ensure the best quality and maximum durability. We are working with ceramics for over 18 years in our small family manufactory in Hungary and combine this thousands of years old tradition with modern technology and our experience to create unique products with great care. All of our products are handmade and uniquely designed using the best ingredients. Glazed pyrogranite ceramics go through a double firing process which gives their durability and exceptional resistance against extreme temperatures. The clay products are shaped manually then are left to dry for 10 days and then fired in the oven at 1150C. After that they are coated with the glazing and put back into the oven at 1050C. Thanks to this process the ceramics become fire, water and frost resistant. Our goal was to combine the traditional pottery and ceramist industry so that all our everyday objects serve as decorations too.

Ceramics are classified as inorganic and nonmetallic materials that are essential to our daily lifestyle.  Ceramic and materials engineers are the people who design the processes in which these products can be made, create new types of ceramic products, and find different uses for ceramic products in everyday life. Ceramics are all around us.  This category of materials includes things like tile, bricks, plates, glass, and toilets.  Ceramics can be found in products like watches (quartz tuning forks-the time keeping devices in watches), snow skies (piezoelectric-ceramics that stress when a voltage is applied to them), automobiles (sparkplugs and ceramic engine parts found in racecars), and phone lines.  They can also be found on space shuttles, appliances (enamel coatings), and airplanes (nose cones).  Depending on their method of formation, ceramics can be dense or lightweight.  Typically, they will demonstrate excellent strength and hardness properties; however, they are often brittle in nature.  Ceramics can also be formed to serve as electrically conductive materials, objects allowing electricity to pass through their mass, or insulators, materials preventing the flow of electricity.  Some ceramics, like superconductors, also display magnetic properties. Ceramics are generally made by taking mixtures of clay, earthen elements, powders, and water and shaping them into desired forms.  Once the ceramic has been shaped, it is fired in a high temperature oven known as a kiln.  Often, ceramics are covered in decorative, waterproof, paint-like substances known as glazes.
