On the island of Lombok in Indonesia, women like Inaq Ajis have been making pottery for more than 500 years. They learn from their mothers and teach their daughters — a traditional passing of skills called "terun temurun." Using clay that is dug nearby, their hands and a few simple tools, they create beautiful, functional earthenware pieces in their homes.See Lombok pottery >
In Moradabad, India, artisans transform ordinary bike
chains into extraordinary pieces of art like this wine
