Women of Chazuta



Chazuta -

The Chazutinos possess a dynamic culture expressing themselves artistically through its ceramics. The ceramics have always played a vital role in the community, making the Chazutinos famous for being bona fide potters and for their distinctive style of molding clay into high quality luxury pottery for festivals and for burying the dead.

Chazuta’s traditional pottery is based on the known and widespread technique of rolls of clay, which are overlapped and smoothed to shapes dishes for different purposes. The painting is pre-fired and polishing is done with a small round pebble. The traditional oven is open, with stacked firewood used as fuel.

The ceramics course can be from half a day to two days long it depends on how many different shapes you wouls like to learn. You will start with a basic bowl shape then move on towards more complicated styles.

On the second day you can have fun painting your work and learn the symbols of the 'Chazutinos' tradition.
