Ethiopian potters

Howdy from Africa! This is going to be a really quick post mostly pictures. Also this is the first time I’ve posted to my blog from my IPad! I probably should have practiced before I left, but it didn’t happen. Yesterday I arrived in Ethiopia and immediately went to see Senedu at Vision on Africa. They help out vulnerable women here in Addis. I spent most of my time with the potters. It was a great two days.

That’s a lot of cow dung!

Yes, they popped popcorn for a tea ceremony!

I will post more about my experiences, so for now a picutrue is worth a 1000 words!

    Are they actually -throwing- on what looks like banding wheels? How does that work exactly?
