Coil building in Gakoigo pottery village

I love two things about this video:
1) The clay they are using looks exceptional; a coarse and plastic body, which they handle very wet. The addition of extra water during the building process makes the process akin to throwing.
2) They are using this wet clay to build upside down pots - as eventually the perfect domes will sit directly on the fire - to transfer the heat to the food within.
It proves you don't need the latest and greatest equipment to be a potter, all you need is clay and your hands!
Amazing work!
