Akwasi Agyeman was born into a family of 12 children in the small tribal village of Foase in Ghana, West Africa. The family was so poor that Akwasi was limited to only a 7th grade education in order to help his father farm to feed the family. In 7th grade his teacher asked each of them to make something for art class. Akwasi produced a Fertility Doll as his project and amazed the teacher. Akwasi knew then he had a natural talent for carving. After ten years and with the help of Fair trade Akwasi is now married with two handsome boys. He employs 15 people and has built a small three bedroom house for his family. Akwasi and his fellow artisans hope you enjoy their work.

Very good quality well made. I love this itemRead More
Used with our Kwanzaa displays, very niceRead More
like this a lot, not too big or too small, not very deep, you can see everything before anything gets the chance to go bad from being on the bottom not getting much air. So nice & will get more to give out as gifts, lightweight, good design and color. I like it.Read More
Bowl is gorgeous and I received it faster than I expected!Read More
I returned this. It was a very crude piece and while I felt a little guilty about not supporting World Market artisans, it just was not worth having. Plus scratched in large letters on the bottom was "not for food." Just plain ugly.Read More
