A video posted to Facebook showing a Turkish potter crafting simple but beautiful items is being widely shared.

With just his fingers, a sharp blade and a potter’s wheel, watch as he makes five delicate pieces of pottery from one piece of clay, in this video shared by the Turkish Facebook account Çini Oyma Sanatı Mehmet.

Our favorite part is when he makes a plate at about 1:50 into the video.
