Snapshots from a day in life of potters in Peshawar.
Clay Potters are common in almost every part of Pakistan with their biggest center in Gujrat but to be honest Clay Art has not been able to get a recognition at the government level at all and infact only a handful of people know about Clay art at all.
@ Ordinary Villager …. if our politicians get to know the value of this industry they will destroy it like any other lets say in the likes of the industries such as sugar, iron, airlines, public transport, cotton, film, TV. Oh my GOD the list is not ending. Let me end it before ET decides NOT to publish my post.
Back to the point, let us bring this ART to the world stage like we did with Truck/Bus art. Lets take nice snaps and send to National Geographics such as above but with some bright colors. Lets write something about it on TIME Magazine-Asia.
Give Politicians some break. Let the politicains do what they do the best…. you know what I mean :-)
