Jill and I continued on the tour and, as we neared the end of it, they led us into a room with a man sitting at a potter’s wheel.

He smiled kindly and our guide informed us that he was going to show us how the vases were made and give us a little show.

I’d write more but the video really speaks for itself.

And for the artistry, and utter joy, of the man throwing the clay, kicking the wheel, and making a vase.

It is worth the time to watch it all the way through.
