A rotating wobbly tire serves as a potters spinning wheel to make hundreds of symmetrical clay pots. The first part of this video is sped-up threefold, and the second part is shown at actual speed. Just one vigorous spin of the tire with a stick provides sufficient rotation to complete each pot. I filmed this amazing pot-maker artist in the ancient city of Bhaktapur, Nepal. The city is located in the Kathmandu Valley and is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its rich culture and ancient architecture.
At the end is a photo of a woman packing the freshly made pots in straw for firing the pots. In the foreground is a pile of ashes from previous fires.
