Pottery & Porselain "Pottery" and "porcelain"

Yakimono is broadly divided into "pottery" and "porcelain". The difference is the material.
Generally, pottery is called earthy and porcelain.
The earth is mainly made of clay, and the stone is a mixture of a stone powder called a porcelain stone, which is mixed with clay.
Because the material is different, the characteristics are different, and there are differences in handling.
