Clay

Bhaktapur also is known as a pottery center, which was exciting to us as we’re both into pottery—Abby has been throwing and hand-building for years, and I started right before we left Bangkok. A lot of the production we saw is standardized, however—not quite the stuff of The Great British Throw Down. After leaving the kilns, we came across some guys working the clay in a courtyard. You literally can see the handiwork in the clay.
