Porcelain and pottery

The inventor of pottery is lost to history, however artistically that honor was bestowed upon the Greeks, Coroebus of Athens and Dibutades with the first modeling in relief and Talus of Athens is said to have developed the first potter’s wheel.

The Chinese are credited with discovering the clay (kaolin) used in the first porcelain during the Tang dynasty (618-907) and by the first millennium the secret process was employed in Japan and Korea. The year 1575 marks the first European soft-paste porcelain that was produced in Florence, although understanding the chemistry of porcelain is generally credited to Johann Friedrich Böttger. By the 1700’s the production was widespread across Europe and countless makers have produced and decorated this marvelous material to this day.
