Ordinary Magic ~ Devi Garh village potter

video

Shoba and I took a walk down from the 18th century Palace of Devi Garh into the village of Delwara. The village was half painted powder blue,in honor of Krishna (and to keep bugs away..they say.)The people of the village were so friendly. We popped into one man's courtyard and watched him throw a small pot. He was so agile.

Out of the mud near his wheel came this beautiful small vessel in minutes.
