For generations Qurol Ota´s family has been teaching pottery. Ever since going blind, his son Fakhritdin has continued the traditional family business. To him pottery is not only a job to make a living but also a philosophy in which you have to spin the pottery wheel fast and consistently. The wheel has to obey the legs and the hands produce a piece of art for eternity. He says that one creates a new world; one holds a whole world in hands. Life goes by, but tradition persists as long as there is love and therefore a descendant.
