Story Behind the Art:
With a background in arts, Samuel Lovi decided to specialize in ceramic artistry. 'There are more than 70 women training with me, and they come from various villages, mostly from the Volta Region. They specialize in traditional pottery and I introduce contemporary designs. In 1998 I was invited to the United States, by Aid to Artisans, for the New York International Gift Show. My work has also traveled to Burkina Faso, La Cote D'Ivoire, and Paris for various fairs. It was judged the best of all the pottery exhibitors at a fair in Burkina Faso and was awarded the UNESCO craft prize in 1998 for its outstanding contribution to creativity in decorative pottery.'
