In January this year Louisburgh potter and artist Anthony O’Brien travelled to Tatiko, a small village in northern Nigeria to film the traditional potters at work. The Tatiko potters are all women, who work without potters' wheels, kilns or any specialised equipment. The pottery they make is for everyday use, for cooling water, storing oil and grain, and for cooking over the open fire. But what makes their pottery so special is that it is stunningly beautiful, finely decorated in a rich red clay. There are some 50 women potters in Tatiko, making hundreds of pots every week, which are all sold in the local market. People come from all over northern Nigeria to buy their work.
