How do ceramics retain heat?
Ceramic is a porous material. It has many small air pockets in it which help to reduce heat conduction. The heat does not transfer easily to air so the transfer is held back by these pockets and the heat is retained in the contained liquid or material. The atomic structure of ceramic accounts for its ability to retain heat due to the configuration of bound atoms or ions. A more crystalline structure will have less heat transferred and will retain more heat.

Asked in Energy
What retains heat?
Any object will "try" to retain heat energy. The material determines how well it will accomplish this. For example, metal is a good conductor, so a sheet of metal will not retain heat very well. Air, or the other hard, is a bad conductor, so fiberglass insolation (will it's many air pockets) will tend to retain heat for some time.
