Ceramicists. These potters Work in the 'Poterie a Mouzoungoudou' in Benin, Africa, making traditonal African ceramics. These pots are well adapted for their use, retaining porosity to allow transpiration and cooling of the pot's contents as well as the ability to withstand the uneven and rapid heating and cooling when cooking over an open fire. In 2005 they came to the International Ceramics Festival in Aberystwyth to demonstrate their handbuilding techniques and traditional bonfire firing.
