Reference: Ancient Pottery of the Holy Land, Ruth Amiran. ********************* Oh Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand {Isaiah 64:8}. The production of pottery was one of man�s great innovations in the later stages of the prehistoric period and one of the most important landmarks in the long process of transition from the nomadic life of hunters and food-gatherers towards a settled existence. Pottery is made of clay, a type of soil almost universally available, which with the addition of water acquires plasticity, enabling the potter to shape it as required. Once fired, the shape given to it is retained.
