See Dutch wooden shoes being hand-carved or carved by machine in a range of sizes--from a miniature Barbie doll version all the way up to a man's size 13. The only authentic delftware factory in the United States is also here, and artisans still hand-paint the blue floral and windmill motifs onto white china just as they have in the Netherlands for more than 500 years. All materials and equipment for both the shoes and the pottery are imported from Holland.
