If it ain't broke don't fix it.
This is a centuries old, time proven, world wide method.

Other materials are used as well.
Ceramics/clay is a fantastic material. In the hands of a skilled practitioner (with virtually no equipment other than basic tools and a kiln) anything can be made. It’s cheap and plentiful and has excellent properties. It can be produced and decorated in many ways. And has been discovered a pot/receptacle can remain in tact for thousands of years, and still be functional. It doesn’t degrade

Clay, like glass, is wonderfully plastic - that is, it can be molded into any shape whatsoever. Moreover, both are very durable - properly fired clay will last for thousands of years, the same with glass. Clay and sand are very inexpensive ingredients.
