"Go down to the potter's house" (Jer 18:1)

Yesterday, I posted a shot of a young boy with clay outside a traditional ceramic workshop in Palestine (see here). The day before (here), we saw the "clay bunker" with a corrugated steel cover (on the left in this image). This shot of the courtyard and front door of the shop brings these pieces together. This is a "village" or "household industry" in rural Palestine. Tomorrow I'll take you inside and detail some of the process of "throwing" ceramic vessels.

The process has changed little in thousands of years.
