Ürün Hikayesi

Pottery is one of the craft of the ancient Niger that is still being practised in most parts of the country today. It is Nigeria’s most cultural material that has caught the attention and interest of early British archaeologists. The main characteristic of African pottery, low temperature firing, surprises Western researchers who have long considered it a technological backwardness compared to vitrified pottery, with a more crystalline sound. However, a more precise analysis of these productions has brought out the two major qualities of this firing method: a preserved porosity that ensures evaporation of liquids on the surface, cooling the contents, and an excellent resistance to thermal shocks that allows the use of these potteries as cooking utensils.
