Highly Collectable Large African Studio Pottery Lidded Bowl by the Nigerian Woman Potter: Ladi Kwali ( (c.1925-1984) - with impressed studio stamp on the underside of the base.

In Excellent Condition:  £265

NEW AUGUST 2014



Ladi Kwali was born in the village of Kwali in the Gwari region of Northern Nigeria. She learned to make pottery as a child using the traditional method of coiling.

Her pots were noted for their beauty of form and decoration. Several were acquired by the Emir of Abuja, in whose home they were seen by Michael Cardew in 1950. In 1954, she joined Cardew's pottery training centre in Abuja, its only woman potter, where she learned to throw pots on the wheel. She made dishes, bowls and beakers with sgraffito decoration but also continued to produce pots using her traditional hand building and decorating techniques. Most of these were glazed and fired in a high-temperature kiln and therefore represent an interesting hybrid of traditional African with western studio pottery.

Through Kwali's contact with Cardew, she and her work became known in Europe, Britain and America. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, her work was shown to great acclaim in London at the Berkeley Galleries. She became Nigeria's best-known potter, was awarded a doctorate and was made MBE in 1963. The Abuja Pottery was renamed the Ladi Kwali Pottery and a major street in Abuja is called Ladi Kwali Road.


Highly Collectable  1960s African Abuja Studio Pottery Mug by Lami Toto - with impressed studio stamp on the underside of the base.

In Excellent Condition:  £100

NEW AUGUST 2014



In 1950 the Nigerian authorities asked Michael Cardew to become 'Pottery Officer' with the aim of improving the quality of the local work. He spent most of the next fifteen years there, having set up the Pottery Training Centre at Abuja. There were exhibitions of Abuja pottery in London in 1958, 1959 and 1962, and another in Lagos in 1960.
