Product Description

Large Nupe Clay Pot

Traditional African clay pot, hand-crafted, etched and decorated by Nupe potters. Each pot is constructed using hand-coiling and pinching techniques, then fired in an open kiln. After cooling,each pot is naturally stained with a burnt ochre colored liquid that is derived from boiling a particular tree bark. Over time, this glaze may take on a silverish patina if left to weather naturally.

Hand-molded by Nupe potters in the village of Giri, Nigeria. These large pots with rounded bottoms are traditionally used to store water. The pots are buried half-way in the ground thereby keeping water cool.

Works well as a focus piece indoors or in the garden. Easily adjust pot sitting angle with the included natural raffia display ring.

Each piece is handmade, therefore patterns and colors may differ.
