Editorial Reviews

The techniques used by Igbo, Yoruba, Gwari and Benin potters to form jars, fire and decorate them. The video and slides show how the clay is dug, how it is mixed with ground potsherds and kneaded. You can see the potter discuss the qualities of the clay and temper. She then forms the base against the palm of her hand, places it in a support, and continues to build it larger. She then adds the rim and decoration and allows the pot to dry. Next we see the women gathering fuel for the firing out in the "bush" (wilderness) and firing the pots. The sections on Yoruba, Gwari, and Benin are similar, but are slides, not video. The Igbo section is video filmed in 2010, the sections on Yoruba, Gwari, and Benin are slides taken in 1991 in Nigeria by Christopher D. Roy, Professor of African Art at the University of Iowa. The DVD is suitable for any age level, especially for high-school and college students of African art and ceramics. I doubt it is enough "infotainment" for very young students.
