To dream of pottery represents sensitive feelings about maintaining a pleasant situation. Not wanting to be careless with others feelings after making up. Not wanting to embarrass or anger someone because it makes life a lot easier for you. A careful attitude about relationships or social interaction with others.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing himself thinking of giving an old friend gift earrings made of pottery and then deciding to change his mind not to. In waking life the old friend had tried to make up with him after 10 years of rudely ignoring him. He was considering showing up at a family event the old friend was having to make amends, but decided he didn’t feel comfortable doing so. The gift pottery in the dream may have reflected his feelings about giving his old friend a chance to make up and carefully never insult him again.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of seeing pottery smashing. In waking life she was being really nice to a professional to get advice from him for free because she felt that she had previously angered him. When the advice wasn’t pleasant to hear she believed the professional was starting to get angry again when he wasn’t. The pottery in this case may have reflected her feelings about how sensitive it felt to maintain a pleasant friendship with the professional taking extra care not to be careless with her words.
