Machines make millions of pieces of beautiful pottery. These pieces have been designed by experts. They are made in quantity and low in cost. Strangely, people continue to buy pottery that has been handcrafted. The reason for this is quite simple. People want their home to be unique, and handcrafted pottery is always a unique item. Even if the artist makes many bowls, vases or pots, each one will have something unique in its form or decoration. This is the reason people will continue to pay more and take the time to seek out items that are made by hand.
