Artisans in this region do not use potters wheels in the forming process. The clay is  elegantly shaped entirely by hand, resulting in a thin-walled vessel of beautiful symmetry. The pot must dry slightly before it can be slipped or painted. The fine-line painting is done with a brush, typically made from the artist’s or his family’s hair. When completed, it is ready to be fired.
