CLAY AND FIRE : CERAMIC ART in JAMAICA
Ceramics is the fine art of manipulating clays into hardened shapes and the objects made out of this art form are called ceramics clay, Ceramics clay could even be shaped into highly esthetical forms, which are classified as ceramic art.
The final quality of the ceramics clay item depends greatly on the type of clay that is being used. Ultimately, it is the clay that will decide how cheap or expensive the ceramics clay item will be.
As fire ignites your soul and provides an unwavering flame and light into the unknown, distinctive and recognisable pieces of clay encapsulate precise detailing, bright and vibrant colours that celebrate beauty and dignity.
Art lovers and enthusiasts capture the dynamism of clay in each of magnificent pieces and with the silent, introverted magnanimity of sculptural and ceramic forms understandably has influenced greater local recognition for ceramics and ceramic sculpture as a fine art.
They serve as items of utility and such beauty in our homes and offices.
