Serbian hand-wheeled pottery makes UNESCO list

The tiny village of Zlakusa in Serbia is home to the centuries old tradition of hand-wheeled pottery- mostly used as unglazed cooking earthenware. In December, the practice made it onto the prestigious UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list.

48-year-old Goran Savic is, to his knowledge, the fourth generation of potters, and spends every day in the workshop with his 91-year-old grandfather, who despite being nearly completely blind, still manages to create perfectly-shaped traditional earthenware on a daily basis.

The vessels, made out of clay and calcite, are used in households and restaurants throughout Serbia.
