Some people just prefer to do it themselves. They see something and want it, but they'd rather make it than buy it. This is the way many people have begun to learn a skill or craft. Pottery is one of those skills where making it only adds to the value of a piece. Learning how to make pottery for the home is a wonderful way to extend skills and create at the same time. It offers the opportunity to master a series of skills without a great deal of pressure. Pottery skills can be learned step-by-step and starting over is always acceptable.
