If you want to tell us about how to make Laljin pottery, we need to get to know you in a village called a handyman.This village sends the soil to the Laljin pottery in the form of large and small cookies to the village.Mix the cookies with water in the trough with water to crack it in the form of a muddy flower or lava.The resulting mixture is then homogeneously separated by special alcohols to remove impurities such as pebbles.Then do not stop it for a few days to get a bit tight.After this time, if the flower is appropriate, it will use a tall wooden to create lines of flowers at a depth of several centimeters on the flower.Then the flowers leave the existing lines and they come in the form of bricks.The bricks are then sent to different workshops and stored in a room called a diploma.

The bunch of stored flowers will be spread for use by two people, and this will continue until the flower is fully prepared.Then they split the prepared flowers into smaller pieces and form the so-called "Chone" sticks.At this stage, the flower is ready for the pottery.
