Popular African Ceramic Vases
Industrial Ceramic Black Vase with Clay Rivets from Ghana, "Industrial Midnight"$89.99
Artisans from Kpando Pottery Fesi Shed create this handsome ceramic vase. They craft the cylinder by hand and fire it in a wood-burning kiln. Removing the burning hot piece from the kiln, they plunge it into sawdust which bursts into flame, depriving the piece of oxygen and turning the clay dark.
Raku produces absolutely unique pieces and no two are ever alike. Thus variations in tone and surface texture are to be expected, confirming the uniqueness of each vase.
Rustic Ceramic Vase, "Unity Fruit"$144.99
West African symbolism pervades this lovely ceramic vase by Samuel Lovi. Both richly textured faces are centered with a medallion bearing the symbol. Depicting Siamese crocodiles, funtunfunefu denkyemfunefu represents democracy and unity in diversity. Lovi names the design a Ewe word meaning "Fruit."
