The art of creating pottery is a tradition that dates back centuries in Ethiopia. For generations, artisans have used their skills to craft a number of items, including coffee pots, bowls, plates and incense burners, among other goods. Despite the importance of these items in the Ethiopian artistic tradition, the crafting of pottery seems to be a dying trend. The Amatate Chaka Women Potters Association in Kechene, however, is hoping to change that, by providing women a space to create their items and sell them to potential buyers. EBR’s Meseret Mamo visited the Association to learn more about the women who work there and how they’re hoping to keep the tradition alive.
