Handmade ceramics are becoming increasingly popular. Restaurants and cafés in the city are asking ceramic artisans to create functional ceramics that add personality to their dishes. Boutique shops and trend-setting magazines highlight ceramics as a desirable design feature. More and more people are choosing ceramics over factory-made homewares and rediscovering the soul and beauty of handmade products. The revival of this ancient art is a natural response to our disposable, throw-away culture. People are tired of buying mass-produced products - things that are not unique, meaningful, or memorable. Unlike the "perfect" (symmetrical, smooth, identical) objects produced by big industry, the true perfection of a handmade pot is that it is impossible to create another piece of the same kind. Each object bears marks from the production process. When an object is made by hand, you won't want to throw it away. You will take care of them and cherish them.
Note: Dutch Deluxes lacquer does not like contact with acidic food as it can cause stains. However, the designers of this series have purposely created this lacquer so that, over time, the use of these wonderful dishes will lead to more and more stains, and so that the dish will have its own unique story to tell.
