Syrian potter preserves centuries-old craft

Syrian-Armenian potter Misak Antranik Petros watches his son Anto moulding a clay vase at his workshop located inside an ancient mud-brick house near the city of Qamishli in Syria's northeastern Hasakeh province, on December 19, 2020. Petros was only a teenager when he had to take over for his sick father and become the main potter of the family. He has since become a master of the craft, and is keen to pass his skills on. / AFP / Delil SOULEIMAN
