Ikebana in ceramics from Kechene, Addis Abeba
Ikebana in ceramics from Kechene – what a challenge for ikebanists!
Kechene women’s pottery cooperative is a wonderful place in Addis Ababa. 30 women potters run this cooperative, doing their art and earning money for themselves and their families.
They take out earth from a nearby river bed and make it into a workable clay following ancient procedure. This is hard work.
The objects made are sold in the shop.
