pottery flowers

This lady is one of the few people remaining who can make pottery flowers.  Using only her hands and an implement like a comb she showed me how she makes a carnation in under five minutes.  A freshly made example is seen on the circular stand at the left of the picture, where it is drying before firing.  This type of work has declined markedly in recent years as fashions have changed.
