Margarites, the pottery village of Crete

Field trip on the island of Crete, in the villages of ceramics. I found it truly amazing that a few of the local ceramicists here are still digging the clay themselves out of Mother Earth!
So I decided I would move here next year, even for only a week… I want to feel and experience the essence of the trade as it was in the old days. How it was to work with sweat and tears to have this material ready to work with. To imbibe the distinct characteristics of authentic Greek design and ornaments. And to wheel a huge Greek amphora.
