A particular way of manufacturing ceramic pots is depicted in the process diagram.

Overall, it is clear that there are three main stages in the process: digging the raw materials, transporting it and manufacturing of ceramic pots.

After the excavation of raw materials with the help of a digger, it is transported to the manufacturing unit via trucks. All the crucial steps in the process are undertaken there.

At the unit, the first process is crushing of raw materials, and it is done in two stages. The fine powder, which is obtained after the secondary crushing is transferred to a mixing unit, where it is mixed with water till it reaches a perfect consistency for the next process: moulding.

The mixture is then channeled to individual moulds via pipes, and the filled moulds are kept stationary for about 4-6 hours for drying. Then these moulds are separated, and the raw pots are arranged in the oven for heating. The temperature inside the oven is raised to 1000 degree celcius, and the post- heated pots are taken out individually and colored manually.

The next step is making the pots glaze by the process of color firing and finally finished pots are ready.
