While ceramic pieces are made to be beautiful and sometimes useful, pottery is made to be both useful and decorative. Because of this, pottery is a living art. Each piece has a function as well as its own unique character. This combination makes pottery an asset when choosing home décor and accessories. Whether the buyer needs a set of dishes or vases, each piece of pottery will be useful according to its form. The dual functionality of pottery makes it a good buy, especially for people on a limited budget. Each piece is worth twice the amount paid and will last for many years to come.
