Roughing the Pot

The process of making pots involves several steps. First, the clay is soaked in water to soften it. Then, the potter molds the clay to form the base of the pot, ensuring it has a stable surface to rest on. Next, the potter smooths the surface, both on the bottom and inside, to create a polished finish. The potter is capable of producing around 50 pots in a day, but this requires clear weather conditions. Once the pots are shaped, they are left to dry. After drying, the pots are further refined, with the potter continuing to smooth the interior surfaces. This process requires time, dedication, and skill, as the potter has been doing it for a while and can produce a significant number of pots.
