"The Pot Maker" captures the artistry and craft of a Swazi potter in a unique and dynamic way. Tretchikoff's attention to detail is evident. The Swazi potter is portrayed in a moment of quiet contemplation, carefully examining her finished work. This portrayal underscores the potter's connection with her creation, emphasising the sense of pride and accomplishment that comes from producing a piece of artistry. The artist's skillful rendering captures the nuances of the potter's facial expression and the intricacies of the pottery, making the viewer feel a sense of intimacy with the subject.

Tretchikoff's choice to depict the potter in this manner conveys a deep respect for the craftsmanship and traditions of the Swazi people. Tretchikoff's artistic vision led him to a fascinating revision of the piece, in an intriguing artistic development, he revisited and reimagined this work in a second depiction, introducing an element of movement to enhance the piece. This painting stands as a tribute to the craft and culture it represents, and to the artist's ability to convey depth and meaning through his work.
