Even today, the processing is carried out with quarry-extracted clay in front of the furnace, with ancient techniques performed exclusively by hand. With great mastery and skill, using only basic tools such as a wooden rod, a sponge, a stick and a piece of cotton, the clay is shaped and moulded, moving the position of the fingers by just a few millimetres. The shaping of the clay, drying, filling of the kiln, firing, and cooling are all very delicate phases requiring great commitment and ability that can only be achieved with lengthy experience and attention.
