Please remember that no handmade work is absolutely perfect, which is contrary to machine made products. (The latter being absolutely inferior in every aspect).

“Anyone who has really experienced the magic of a fine handmade
mug with a truly wonderful handle will never go back to the Wal-Mart mug.

One of the primary features contributing to the magic of handmade wares is the lack of absolute uniformity. That lack of uniformity expresses and emphasizes
the humanity and personal expression in the individual item.
Machine made ceramic forms, with every piece identical, are dead.”
