Help make your image easier for people to find and use[edit]

Keep in mind: when a category tree is set up properly, putting an image in the most specific categories will automatically add it to the more general categories. All images categorized as pottery are subcategory of the ceramics category, so should show up in higher level category searches. When categorizing a pottery image, try to answer at least a few of the basic questions:

Where: pick the country as locally as possible to where the piece was made:
'Pottery by country 'or use
Pottery by origin if a specific national location is unknown.

When: time of production. This is pottery, so you have choices: dates, epochs, and historical periods.
Pottery by period

  • Pottery by century‎
  • Pottery by decade
  • Pottery by millennium‎

What/How: With pottery, this question can be answered several ways. Look at the subcategories for specific glazing or firing techniques
Pottery by technique‎

  • Glazed pottery‎
  • Pottery by type‎

Or perhaps this is better answered by a category from Pottery by style‎
If your image represents a manufacturing process or represents pottery sales or presentation, include a subcategory or subcategories from these:

  • Pottery by Museum
  • Manufacture of pottery
  • Pottery markets‎
