Welcome to Artisan Week here at OPOD. We will be looking at people who make things with their hands . . . almost a lost art in this day and age. We start with this picture of a Zuni Potter. As I looked at fine Indian Pottery in the past, one thing I never thought about is that Indians did not have pottery wheels. You can see that the way she is making the pot is to role the clay into a long tube, and then build the pot by wrapping the tube around, and then using the fingers to press out the tube shape. It is amazing the precision and fineness they were able to achieve using this technique.
