This man is making pottery in Guaitil, carrying on a tradition that dates back before the arrival of Columbus. The oven used to bake pottery is visible behind him.
On June 23 I posted a photo of the church in Guaitil, and several people posted comments asking me to show the pottery. I decided to show the pottery making process first, beginning with today's photo, that shows the shaping of a vase.
In a few days, I will show a photo of a man painting the pottery, and a few days after that I will show what the finished pottery looks like.
