Why does it seem as if ceramics are priced on their amount of surface area?

becouse they are: Price Per cm2: $0.18/cm2 surface area


The only thing that limits us is our imagination.

If I was guessing, it's because the expensive part of the process in this case is the glaze, therefore surface area matters more in this case than volume.
