Handmade With Love – Why Pottery Is the Perfect Gift

Handmade Pottery Has Multifunctional Purposes

Handmade pottery is the gift that just keeps giving. Artisan pottery in Ireland comes with a range of different textures and unique features that will stand out, compared to mugs you buy in the popular high street shops. Not only can it be used within the kitchen to enjoy your morning coffee, but it can also be used as part of your home’s décor. For example, our Loaf Pottery jugs can be filled with your favourite flowers as a decorative centrepiece instead of using a vase, or to serve guests who are visiting your home.

You are Supporting Local Businesses

Purchasing handmade gifts will help to support local businesses and craft industries within your community or even abroad. With handmade pottery in Northern Ireland there are no hidden costs compared to some high street brands – the price you pay is for what you see. The money you pay will help local craft industries to grow their businesses, develop their skills, and they may even have enough revenue to hire people within the community.

Handmade Pottery Is a Unique Gift

Handcrafted pottery made in Ireland is a unique one of a kind gift that is sure to impress. At Loaf Pottery we believe that pots should be like twins, as they may look similar however each will have its own unique character. Handmade pottery is a unique that will be a perfect and timeless addition in any home. This makes them a thoughtful and original gift for your loved ones that they will cherish for a long time.

Handmade Pottery is Sustainable

Buying handmade pottery gifts is a more sustainable choice compared to products you will find in high street stores. It takes more energy to create mass produced pottery and can produce a lot more waste in the process. International shipping also needs to be taken into consideration when thinking about the environmental impact of high street ceramics. Many businesses like Loaf Pottery who supply handmade products will make a conscious effort to minimise the impact their produce is having on the environment by eliminating plastic and recycling where possible.
