POTTERY IN HISTORY
Pottery, which began to develop with the transition of nomadic tribes to sedentary life, dates back to the Neolithic Period, or approximately 7000 BC, in Anatolia.
It is understood that the first pottery was shaped by the coil-and-padding method, and that baking was generally done over an open fire. With the invention of the potter’s wheel in the 3000 BC, shaping on the wheel also began. At the same time, primitive kilns were used to bake the clay.
