Nixi Pottery Village

This blog is a bit delayed because it got stuck in my email outbox.

We headed over to Nixi village that specializes in traditional Tibetan pottery using local mud and firing practices passed down from generation to generation for over 800 years. The local master taught us how to pound and roll out a cup. He then cleaned up the cups with final finishing touches. Then we each added our own carvings to the outside. While we are hiking in Yubeng, he will fire them in a pit filled with wood, which will turn them black glazed. We hope to pick them up on our way home.
