I enjoy making pottery. It doesn't bother me even when I'm making a piece.

Even if you think that something is not interesting, you can forget it once you enter the potter's wheel.

For example, customers still like and use the dishes that they bought in the past.

I'm happy that you've been using it for a long time.
