THE POTTERS FROM AKILIBA

Our artisan partners in Akiliba, in the rural West Nile area of Northern Uganda, are determined to use pottery as a way to support their entire community. Their beautiful creations are hand-built using locally sourced clay, and then stacked into a brush-covered mound for firing.
