A man was making pottery on a wheel at Shilparamam. The wheel is not powered by any electricity but spins continuously. It took him only 5 seconds to make a pot and get it off the wheel. Such incredible skill! All pots are air-dried.
Some beautiful paintings I bought at Shilparamam last week. These pictures were painted on old postcards. Such minute, exquisite detail! I talked to the artist, a man from Rajasthan, for a bit and spent a long time looking at his other works. The postcards were my favorite by far. I love the contrast between the old browned postcard and the bright pigments of the image.
