Syrian potter preserves centuries-old craft

Inside a dusty and dark workshop in northeast Syria, Misak Antranik Petros uses an ancient pottery wheel to throw different shapes from clay, in his workshop, located inside an ancient mud-brick house near the city of Qamishli in Syria's northeastern Hasakeh province. The 85-year-old Syrian potter of Armenian origin said his family has practised the craft for more than 450 years.
