Who is the potter?

On our trip to see the eclipse we stayed in a town called Avanos. It is in the region of Cappadocia which is one of the places 1 Peter was written to...check out 1 Peter 1:1. Anyway this town is know for it's pottery. There are clay pots everywhere! In the town square there is a pile of pots...I think it is a statue. On many street corners there are random pots. There were many different kinds...some painted some just in their original clay color. Come visit and we will take you there!

Will tried his hand at pot making and did a pretty decent job. He did have a little help though!

Sumer, one of our Turkish friends...and an employee of Brian's, takes a turn at the potter's wheel. It is foot powered so every few minutes she had to push it like a merry-go-round.

Anna Grace and a friend sit at a fountain in a city park. Notice the pile of pots on the top!

Sumer's finished product! We weren't sure what to call it. Modern pottery?

One of the stores that sells the many different pots. These stores all have rooms that are like caves. This is actually a doorway into another room of the store.

I have always wanted a potter's wheel. I think if we end up buying a place next year, I want enough room for one in the garage.
