Zulu woman at a reconstructed traditional village in South Africa rolling clay for pottery making

Photo taken in the Winter of 1979. For those interested in the various ways pottery is made and used throughout Africa, I would recommend the two volumes by Dietrich Drost (one on the technical aspects of pottery making and one on social and economic aspects). The full references are:

 

Dietrich Drost, "Töpferei in Afrika. Technologie." Veröffentlichhungen des Museums für Völkerkunde zu Leipzig Heft 15 (Akademie-Verlag, Berlin, 1967).

 

Deitrich Drost, "Töpferei in Afrika. Ökonomie und Soziologie." Sonderdruck aus Jahrbuch des Museums für Völkerkunde zu Leipzig Band XXV (Akademie-Verlag, Berlin, 1968)
