Pottery Workers of Oaxaca

While doing a little research on black clay pottery I found this little video clip which is really interesting.  I think whoever wrote it has a very romantic view of what the indigenous children think is fun but watching Zapotec potter Doña Rosa Real de Nieto work is amazing.

  1. Lori, thanks for posting this, I can make a wheel out of two pots, so cool, I love seeing the making of the hand formed pot by Dona Rosa.

    yeah all kids love hauling loads of wood, it's so much "fun". Ha!

  2. Right Linda - they love washing clothes by hand in a stream too.
