The art of making pottery, or Khiew-Ranei as it is known in the local language, with the use of black clay mixed with serpentine stone is called black pottery. These are made with local techniques passed down from generation to generation. This form of pottery is unique not only because of what is used to make it, but the way in which it is made also plays an important role in why these pots are so different and beautiful.
Because of the fact that these pots are locally made and sold, Miss Roilin and her family often face many challenges in the making of these pots. One of these challenges is the difficulty in fulfilling orders and delivering products due to the poor roads and infrastructure of the area. The fact that the production process is rather tedious and long does not help either. Since only the women of the region make these pots, the men are usually engaged in acquiring the black clay and the serpentine stone.
