Already impressive

Hebron potter 4.jpg

After our interviews with the older members of the family, this young man sits down and demonstrates that he can throw too. He works off the top of a single column of clay, centered and spinning on an electric wheel. In less than a minute he shapes a tiny vessel, perfectly proportioned, lops it off with a wire, and hands it to me for examination. His skill as a craftsman is already impressive.

This production center is located in al-Khalil (Hebron), Palestine.
