About a week ago
a friend of mine
asked if I wanted to go
and pick out some pottery
since we're leaving soon
I said, Sure!
So we loaded up the kids
(since he's good a finding places)
headed out to A'ali Village
in search of the infamous Bahraini pottery.
Here's what we found...
The first place we went...
The Artist found her initial at this place
Right around the corner was another lovely pottery place
named A'ali Pottery, fitting since it's in A'ali Village. LOL
These guys made jokes and were really good with the kids!
Watching them work and interact with each other was a lot of fun.
They put The Artist to work...
She LOVED it!
The Athlete getting in on the fun...
and I tried it out as well. :-)
After our attempt to make pottery
we headed back inside to pick out a couple of pieces.
It was all so lovely, and so unique and since it was handmade
no 2 pieces were exactly alike. The sizes and shapes were different, yet similar,
and there was so much to chose from!
Eventually after about an hour and a half of looking, then haggling the price
we chose our pieces and then waited until this weekend to go pick them up.
There was a Friday Market in full swing when we arrived.
Mr. Sergeant and the Artist with one of the finished products...
I love how they turned out...
and of course, we couldn't resist the temptation to
get a few more pieces...
I can't wait to see them finished. :-)
Stay tuned for more fun!
