Ceramic is an inorganic, non-metallic, hard brittle material, containing metal or nonmetal compounds that have been shaped and then hardened by heating to high temperatures. Most ceramics are crystalline and poor conductors of electricity, though some recently discovered copper-oxide ceramics are superconductors at low temperatures. The earliest known ceramics made by humans were pottery objects and figurines date from 27,000 years ago; there were made of clay or clay mixed with silica, then hardened and sintered in fire.
