The forming of a Mata Ortiz or Casas Grandes pot.

In forming the pot, clay is patted out creating a "tortilla"
and then pressed into a plaster or clay bowl. This gives
the traditional pottery a characteristic rounded bottom.
Hand-rolled coils of clay are added to this base,
pinching and smoothing as the pot takes form.
The only tool used besides the hand is a piece of hacksaw blade.
