Here is a series of photos showing a demonstration of pottery-making at Doña Rosa in San Bartolo Coyotepec. The artisan is Doña Rosa's son, Don Valente Nieto, who passed away May 2010. The work went really fast, maybe 15 minutes.

The demo begins with a lump of clay.

A rough form takes shape on the potter's wheel

The neck is added to the vessel

One quick motion added the spout

The vessel gets a handle

Decoration is added
