Ceramics factory. External view of a ceramic tile factory, with steam rising from its chimneys. Ceramics are produced from pliable, earthy materials which are made rigid by being heated to high temperatures. Photographed in Staffordshire, Britain, an area which is traditionally so strongly associated with ceramics manufacture that it is known as "The Potteries".
