Handmade Pottery Technician

The primitive craft which is associated with the cultural evolution of man; clay, the unique material and fire, the key element, were used together to provide the earliest forms of everyday objects. Traditional practice, combined with new techniques, offers multiple opportunities for research and knowledge of the material; the sense of functionality and technical knowledge give personal style to pottery creation.

Theoretical and practical knowledge and practice make it possible to apply theory to practice; thus these two factors interact in the production of the object.
