During a fabulous visit in the Niassa reserve in northern Mozambique, Paula Ferro introduced me to Bibi and Elisa, two wonderful ladies who still create amazing potteries following a traditional method dating two millennia. The clay is collected on the river beds of the Lugenda, molded by hands and simple tools and cooked by firewood on the river bed. No ovens are used in the process. Yet these pots are solid. The process is an art that only they master, from the choice of clay to the temperature of the wood fire. The pots are so amazing that they can store fresh water safely for months in the bush. Thanks to Paula, they now create a variety of pots with ornaments designed for decorative purposes. I personally use a few for diner presentation.
