Our partner artisan in Uganda uses traditional methods to create his ceramics, hand throwing most of his work onto a potters wheel.
Using locally sourced clay, he supervises the entire process of preparing the clay, to make it ready to mould. Although the production process is very similar to other potters, our artisan has made a decision to only use organic raw materials for his pieces, and no chemicals. To achieve the unique finish for his products, he uses natural soils such as red soil, picked from anthills, to produce a beautiful orange/red colour. He also always uses black in his colour palate because, he says, ‘we are making African designs, and we apply the black colour to make our items completely unique’. The difference between these decorative ceramics, is that they are only burnished, not glazed.
