What were the typical crafts for Maya?

Please help me list and describe some of the traditional crafts for Mayan civilization. What did they mostly do/create?
A

Mayans are well-known as great pottery makers. They did not use the pottery wheel. However,the tecnique they used was coiling consecutive rings of clay on top of each other and smoothing the surface by hand.

Also, they were good when it came to working with stone – stone craving is another important craft of Maya. Many of the stone buildings were intricately carved with images of kings.

The Mayans also carved wood, obsidian, bone, shells, jade and other stones.
