Ann's Pottery | Randolph, Massachusetts | Functional stoneware pottery by Ann Schunior.

Ann Schunior's work is inspired by traditional crafts around the world. Her pottery forms come from the unfailing shapes of simple functional ware, but her surface designs come from animal imagery on petroglyphs, wood carvings and fabric paintings of Native American and African cultures. Ann travels widely to meet craftspeople that still work in the old ways.

Training Women in Rural Ghana to be Potters

Since 2007 I have visited the village of Sirigu, Ghana, three times. When I was there in January, 2013, I was delighted when they asked if I could help them raise money to train more young women as potters.

Pottery gives them income-generating skills and helps preserve their indigenous culture. I was able to raise $6000 which also helps them sell their work at a pan-African craft expo in Burkina Faso in 2014.

The campaign is closed, but it's still posted at There a vide about Sirigu potters with lots of my photos.
