Indigo -- Turkish Pottery {Sheryl}

Well, I started off the day late!  Don't ya just love it when that happens?  Rushing out the door knowing I hadn't posted my submission for today.   I had every intention of being home before any of you got up (which is usually pretty easy for me) however, life got in the way!



While we were in the area of Izmir we were able to see how such pottery was made.  The pottery itself is made free hand on a wheel.  After the piece is fired the design is hand drawn by a master artist.  The color is added by an apprentice.  Then glazed and fired again.  The designs all have different meanings of hospitality.  I found this piece at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul.
Don't forget to link your "Apricot" finds.  Feel free to jump in anytime!
Thanks for stopping by -- Sheryl
