Under Construction-How our pots are made

This is the process

All our pots are made from clay in two forms. One is moist clay that is formed by hand using a wheel and other tools. The Second is method called slip casting which uses clay powder suspended in water and poured into plaster molds.  
The photos below show the key parts of the process
