I have wondered for some time if someone in ancient times could have 
recorded noises or sounds in pottery. If the pottery was spinning and the 
person was using a sharp instrument to carve spiral designs in the pottery
could it possibly have recorded noises in the background? I'm sure the
laugh is on me but I NEED to know. Thank You
