In art, handcrafted refers to objects that are made by hand, rather than by machine. This type of craftsmanship is often associated with traditional methods of making things, such as carving, weaving, or pottery. In recent years, the term has also been used to describe objects that are designed and created by artists, rather than mass-produced in factories.

Handcrafted objects are usually unique, and often have a special meaning or purpose for their creator. They may be made for personal use, or given as gifts to others. Handcrafted items can also be sold, either through art galleries or directly to buyers.
