Hand made pottery

This photo is for my fellow Marcus Beach Artisan, Michael Wootton, who is exhibiting his spiritual ceramic vessels at our upcoming ‘Expressions’ Exhibition. You would have loved this village Michael.

Yandabo is one of nine villages in Myanmar that make these traditional pots using first a foot-driven wheel, then hand beating the pots into their voluptuous shape. The pots are then fired in the open air. It takes considerable skill to build the wood, straw and dirt oven mounds, ensuring that all the pots reach the necessary firing temperature.
