Story

Decorative, textured earthenware with a rustic burnt finish, these bowls are crafted in Uganda from locally-sourced clay.

In rural Northern Uganda you will find the village of Akiliba, home to our artisan partners who are determined to use pottery as a way to sustain their entire community. Their beautiful creations are hand-built using locally sourced clay and then stacked into a brush-covered mound for firing.

Because of their remote location and a lack of transportation, the group was unable to access the larger markets in the area, limiting the amount of pottery they could sell. Now, through Obakki’s partnership, we’ve been able to help them travel to these markets, enabling the community to grow a sustainable local source of income.

Details
  • MEASUREMENTS: 6.75” diameter, 2.5" depth

  • Please note, each bowl is handmade using natural clay and fired in open flame; therefore, pigments and shapes may differ from piece to piece.
Product Care
