Pottery at Kazuri Beads in Kenya
Pottery made at Kazuri Beads is for a local market. Beaded jewellery, on the other hand, is sold worldwide, including through fair trade networks.
After the clay is mixed, it is filter pressed (above) and then extruded through a pug mill.
Some pots are slipcast in plaster molds.
Some pots are formed by jigger jolly.
Glazing the pottery.
Some pots are made on Brent wheels (like mine!)
