Primitive skills - Pottery

One of the skills, Angelica, Cedar and Zach enjoyed was creating the pottery.  Which was then fired by being buried in the ash overnight.  The pots were rotated and moved around so that the firing process wouldn't cause them to crack.  It required diligent attention over the hot embers on a hot day. 
Cedar's coaster says "Ma" as a thank you for his mora knife from the trade blanket. Angelica made a bowl with some decorative edging.Angelica pressed a delicate pattern around the edge of her clay pot before it was fired.
