Art pottery pieces were hand-thrown, hand-decorated artistic products. Later products, also considered part of the art pottery movement, were made with underglaze slip decorations, matte glaze, high-gloss glaze, carved, molded, or applied decoration, and with a variety of other techniques.

Many of the art potteries started as one-man or one-woman operations and then grew to become large, successful financial ventures, with hundreds of employees.
Overlapping with the art pottery movement were the studio potters of the 1920s and after. A studio potter usually had a small pottery with one or two potters.
