Making a clay bottle from dirt you find on the ground is messy fun

In continuing his really awesome hand made series, Andy George of How to Make Everything learns how clay pots and bottles are made from the very beginning (dirt!) to the beautiful end (ceramics). In between, you see him show us every step of the process like digging up the dirt, filtering out the crap in the dirt, moistening the dirt, getting the air out the dirt and then shaping the dirt. It’s really fun.
