A team of two potters begins to shape a stoneware jar, observed by a would-be potter in training. The team uses a set of ten wheels, and in the course of a day they complete ten jars, coiling and shaping first the base and lower wall, then the mid-section, and finally the shoulder and neck for all ten jars.
