Artistic Pottery

I t's that time of the year again: the birthday, the anniversary, a wedding or maybe any other special occasion. And you have to rack your brains once more to come up with an innovative gift item. This time around we'll help you come up with something new and creative - the unique gift of a piece of artistic pottery.

T he art of pottery dates back to the prehistoric times when man was more of a nomad. It falls within the category of folk art and has been a part and parcel of human life ever since humans embarked on their household activities and domestic products. Pottery marked the first entry of the earth within the hearth - the first kitchen utensils, pots, pans and plates were made of clay and earth. Pottery acts as a symbol of man's first attempts at domestication . Later this basic necessity developed into the refined art of artistic pottery .

T here are many places where the art of pottery developed and have therefore remained the centers of continued creativity. So there are also many kinds of artistic pottery that you could choose from to gift your loved one on that special occasion. It could be divided into three types - the earthenware, stoneware and porcelain.

Japanese and Chinese pottery - especially the porcelain variety are most ancient and world-famous. The Chinese porcelain bowls, pots and dishes, especially those of the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, are usually decorated with scenes originating from Chinese folklore and novels. The uniqueness of gifting this kind of artistic pottery lies in the pleasure of revealing the stories behind the paintings . This decorative piece could make an innovative wedding gift for a couple about to embark on their domestic journey together.

Talking about choices, you have interesting Italian pottery, Islamic pottery in stone and the creative Terracotta earthenware to choose from. There is also the classic blue and white porcelain - tea sets and other domestic items are made of this. This kind of artistic pottery could make a sophisticated gift for a couple celebrating their twenty-fifth anniversary or even an original housewarming gift .
