Ladi Kwali Pottery, Abuja
Ladi Kwali Pottery was established by a British potter of international repute for the preservation and promotion of traditional (motifs) pottery.
The city of Abuja and her pottery became well known all over the world because there are good traditional potters with rich pottery making traditions in the area. Abuja pottery is in high demand in Nigeria and the United Kingdom.
The centre was previously known as Abuja Pottery before it was renamed Ladi Kwali Pottery – the famous Nigerian porter – in the early 1980s.
Ladi Kwali was probably the best known of the Abuja potters. Making pots was women’s work in the Nigerian villages, and Ladi came to Abuja with a knowledge of traditional Nigerian pottery.
The large pots used for water storage were made from spiralled coils of clay, beaten from the inside with an implement like a potter’s rib or a spoon, and fired in the open air by covering them in dry vegetation and lighting it.
Ladi was later to become a very popular member of the touring lecture team; her easy nature and ability to communicate made her well liked and appreciated in Europe, Britain and America.
She became Nigeria’s best known potter and has been honoured in many ways.
