How to make West African pottery!?

I made the flower vase using West African technique at the special Sogetsu's(one famous Japanese flower arrangement organization) Arts Course.

 

Teacher was Machiko Ogawa. She is a famous artist. 

Her pottery is sold out at her exhibition in Tokyo.

She has been to West Africa for several years with her husband. She makes her pottery by the technique of West Africa.
