Meet the Artisan
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.
In the past, the potters’ remote location and lack of transportation left these talented artisans struggling to reach larger markets in the area. Now, through our partnership with the village, we have been able to help them travel to these markets, enabling the community to grow a sustainable local source of income.
