The exhibition of work by 32 ceramicists will be opened

Archeologists have uncovered ceramics dating back to at least 24,000 BC. These were in the form of animal and human figurines and slabs. While the purpose of these ceramics is unclear, they are thought not to have been utilitarian. The first use of functional pottery vessels is thought to be in 9,000 BC and were most likely used to hold and store grain and other foods.
