Visit to Nicaragua
I took these pictures when I visited the artisans in Nicaragua. We went to Masaya to meet the family that makes some of the pottery I have been ordering. Their whole family is involved in the process of making the pottery. He was making a vase for us and describing the process of how they go about making the vase. They use a foot-petal run pottery wheel, and then another member of their family would decorate the vase once it dried. Each member of the family has something they specialize in. Some of the family members go and dig for the clay in their backyard, some of them make the pottery, and some of them decorate it.
