Making Pottery

The last stop in Teotihuacan Valley was a women’s pottery-making cooperative run by these two women:

The women live in a compound with various apartments that they have had built.

Their tools for making pottery are very basic: a corn cob, some rubber, a coconut shell etc.

They don’t have a wheel – just a piece from an old soccer ball sitting on a stone.

Here’s a video of one of the women in the initial stages of making a bowl: MAKING POTTERY.
