Moulding history in upper Burma

The work of artisan potters in historic Shwebo, Sagaing Division is renowned across Burma.

Their long tradition and distinctive style not only makes for a beautiful product, but has helped to preserve the legacy of a once-royal town.

Now, with mass-produced goods flooding market places across the country, the potters are having to call on all their skill and dedication to keep their art form alive.
