When precious talent is not enough to make a living – excellence & extraordinary traditions are threatened  / corners are cut. Products become remnants of faded glory meaningless souvenirs - disconnected from their legacy. Determined to stay true to the ancient heritage of the region & its craft, a young potter revives unique techniques & thrives to produce once again authentic objects.
