As the name implies, handicraft comes from the manual work of an artisan.
The most common is for the artisan to gather the necessary means and work with his own family from home, from preparing the raw material to finishing the pieces..
Portugal is a very country rich in handicraft, having several regions, each one with its own shapes, materials and techniques.
There are several forms of handicraft, among them, pieces worked with clay that after taking shape manually are brought to high temperatures and painted or glazed, individually by the artisan.
Therefore, you will always have a unique piece, as no two pieces are alike.
