Re: Well it is handmade...
Lets not mistake shitty craftsmanship and a clear lack of quality control for something its not. The dents, scratches, bad bowls, bad vases, bad plating, are not done on purpose or with the intent to act character of "uniqueness/individuality" to the pipe. They are there as a reminder to you, that your pipe was rushed by worker who is most likely pressured to make as many pipes as he can within his shift. So we are talking about low standards of work, low standards of a finished product, and most likely exploited workers.
Think about that when you decide to name the dents and mishaps on your pipe a sign of individuality.
