The 'Pottery Experience' audio visual guides you through the different stages of pottery making in Malta from raw form up to a completed piece. Along the way you will also learn the key steps in the process of pottery making including glazes and their reactions to the clay body, heat reductions and chemical reactions taking place inside the kiln Exhibition Pottery is a key indicator of culture. We can open the doors of the past through exhibitions of archaeological finds; we can trace ceramic advances by studying the construction, glazing and firing practices developed throughout history, and we can find clues to the social expression of certain time periods through the study of ceramic shapes, forms and styles of decoration. The Pottery Experience also includes a gallery of artifacts that champions the art, history, creation, and technology of pottery in Malta.
