Ceramic goods are produced at the kiln using fuel with either clay/clay loam/sandy clay/silty clay (earthenware), fire clay (stoneware), or kaolinite (porcelain). A magma kiln can also be used, in which case no fuel is required.
Ceramics can be used to make statues, blocks (labeled as "bricks"), crafts, hives for beekeeping, jugs for storing liquids, and large pots for storing food. Jugs and pots made from earthenware must first be glazed before they can be used to store liquids, while containers made from other materials are naturally resistant to water.
