Ceramics can be defined as heat-resistant, nonmetallic, inorganic solids that are (generally) made up of compounds formed from metallic and nonmetallic elements. Traditional ceramics are in use in dishes, crockery, flowerpots, and roof and wall tiles.
The art of making clay pottery is as old as human civilization. This age-old tradition of making clay pottery still exists in our societies. It still possesses strong socio-cultural values in our livelihood. Despite of all influences of modernization and development, the potters of Kathmandu Valley still find their livelihood on their potter’s wheels.
About Water jug
A water jug is a large bottle with a narrow mouth. Its basic function is to hold water. In other words, it is a large, round container for liquids that has a flat base, a handle, and a very narrow raised opening at the top for pouring the liquid that it is holding. However, it is not necessary that it should only be in use to keep water. We can store milk, whiskey, water and many other liquids in this jug. These jugs are mainly made of ceramics. Therefore it is a better option for keeping water instead of plastics.
