Les ecrits restent et l'encre est un produit naturel.


Explanation:
"Les ecrits restent" is extracted from the idiomatic expression: "les paroles s'envolent et..." pour archival.

Don't quite get the relatioon to pottery though as ink is hardly used for this discipline. More context would have helped.
