A unique fhenomena is the pottery of Veli Iz, which supplied a large part of the Adriatic coast with clay pots for cooking and household use. Some 70 families specialised in this craft in the past. They could sell (exchange) their pots only in the territory assigned to them by casting lots.The potters would throw the unsold pots into the sea before returning home, because it was a disgrace not to sell all the goods.
