Characters using the crafting skill to make clay do so using a process that is a considerably scaled down version of what potters use in real life to make their wears. Once a Runescape character softens the clay he wants to make into a pot, bowl, or pie dish he must then travel to a pottery wheel.
After the character shapes the piece of pottery on the wheel, his creation should be placed in the oven to be fied. If the firing process for a pottery item made using the crafting skill is successful, the character earns a small amount of crafting experience and a can use the piece of pottery he created via the crafting skill.
