Potters wheel tradition dates back to 7000 years B.C. by the invention of potters wheel. In the early days of potters wheel tradition, besides terracotta pieces, polished pieces as well as slipped pieces were made. While there should be a procedure sequence in the work, the case is different with spontaneously-made paintings formed concurretly with the form in the potters wheel. The difference is the necessity in the context that, while the clay is wet, the formation phases of the ceramic form take place at the same time with the pictorial expression on the surface of the form. And this reflects the mystery of the coincidental and surprising formations. This process, which has no turning back, gives the magic of the aesthetic effect.
