Wiley's Pottery Blog

In India we went to a Bishnoi village and got to make pottery.  It is a village way out in the desert. They do not have an electric pottery wheel. What they use is a big stone wheel that has a hole on the bottom that spins on a big pointy stick. He puts a stick in a hole on the top and spins it until it goes really, really fast.  Then he smacks down a big chunk of clay and it starts spinning really fast.

I made an oil lamp!

Then Levi got up to make a cup.  He told him how to shape it and he made a design with his fingernail.

Mac made a flower pot.
