Pottery manufacturing, Morocco



This is a guy who I met during a travel with friends in Morocco. They were visiting a family living nearby the potters quarter of the village and happened so that one of the guys worked as a potter and he invited us to see how their everyday life and work in the small factory is going on. It was done in old fashioned way with a kick wheel, which I thought was pretty cool, but also I notices that they burn old tires when they bake the pottery, which was not cool at all and makes the work and life in the area very unhealthy. I felt sorry for them, but sadly I am not really in position the help them, but at least I can rise awareness of that problem. In my blog I posted a few pictures from the workshop if anybody is interested.
