Thailand Trip part 2- Pots

Ban Chiang, Thailand is a UNESCO World Heritage site because of some thousands-of-years-old pottery discovered there in 1966. It's also the reason for our trip to Thailand!

We visited a museum with all kinds of artifacts (no pictures allowed) and then went to a preserved dig site. 

Then we went to a shop that makes pottery and paints them using the same styles and techniques as the Ban Chiang people did thousands of years ago. 

So beautiful!

Then we got the chance to paint our own small pots in the same style. 

They also let us use their pottery wheel to try and throw our own pots! 

I'd say they did a pretty good job!
