Both terra-cotta and ceramic magnet are crafted in similar fashion, made of fired earth even the process almost remains the same. It's the minor changes in temperature, water content, curing etc that brings out such dramatic differences in both these products. And because of certain qualities of ceramic it makes them suitable for glazing. Glaze is a coating fused to a ceramic object to make it non-porous, though it also finds it's uses in many other decorative ways.
