How to build a full pottery workshop from the earth up

The popular Primitive Technology blog features an unnamed man in Far North Queensland in Australia building tools and structures using only raw, found materials. In this instalment, the man builds a kiln from termite mound clay before crafting and eventually firing a pot, an urn, a forge-blower and several roof tiles. The resulting video falls somewhere between a rugged wilderness survival guide and a soothing DIY arts-and-crafts tutorial. To learn more about the step-by-step process while watching, turn on closed captions in the YouTube video player.
