The ancient way of pottery in Chazuta -12

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

I am not sure, but I think the potter is choosing the right lacre,or tree wax while the pot still hot to polish it, during the process of cooling.
This resin can be maintained in the form of cubes or balls that are applied on the surface of the vase with the hand. At that time it melts from the heat and leaves a bright colour that serves as final finish
