Here’s a mom and son getting it done. Even a five year old can make pottery. Classes are available and fun.


Who do? Udu.

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

udu1Udu (African drum) a musical instrument and utilitarian vessel
used to carry water. 10″ tall 10″ wide. Hand made using the coiling technique then carved with a swirl design. Taping on the small hole on the side gives a nice drum sound that resingates through the round body. No two Udu’s will ever sound a like.
The glaze is a two tone Shino. Rust colored where applied lighty and creamy white where heavy.
