Pots

The craft of pottery is found in the village of A’ali, one of the oldest villages that houses 4,000 year old archaelogical mounds.

The craft is an ancient one as some artifacts found in the mound go back to dilmun age.

Clay is the principal material in this handicraft and is brought from certain local sites. The clay is then beaten then mixed with water until it is ready for throwing. The clay dough is then placed on a foot-operated rotating wheel and shaped as required. The products are kep in the sun to dry and then carefully placed in ancient,purpose-designed kilns,before they are displayed and offered for sale.

The pottery products include beautiful jars,bowls,incense burners ,planting containers,money boxes,vases, etc.
