‘Lodi’ was her name (unfortunately, I lost her last name… but it was something lyrical and rooted in the local Andean dialect. Not Quechua or Saraguro... something more local).
Lodi makes flameware pots (they're used to cook rice and seafood over an open charcoal fire) using methods she’d learned from her grandmother.
Here- she's hand wedging clay that she digs from a local mine, and beating out a rough basin
Here’s a photo essay of Lodi at her trade. With the exception of the mechanical wheel (which she built herself, using a chimeric fusion of machine parts) the process probably links back to the pre-Inca.
