A large Danlami Aliyu jug (35.5 cm / 14 inches tall) that I sold recently. He died in May 2012

Hi
Is it possible that Danlami Aliyu didn't always sign his work?
Or would this just be a piece by someone at the pottery he set up? Obviously made for Voluntary Services Overseas in Nigeria
I bought this with a hyacinth bulb in it!!!  Unfortunately lots of little flea bites in rim glaze.

Two charity shop finds today, a big 4-pint jug and a sort of decanter with spout and stopper, both from Danlami Aliyu's Al-Habib Pottery in Minna, Nigeria. Both are clearly marked with the pottery name, and the jug has impressed initials R.I.

So presumably not by Danlami himself, but very competently potted.

Danlami set up the pottery with the help of Michael OBrien on the same lines as the Abuja Pottery i.e. with several potters working there.


The decoration looks similar to some that I have seen on Danlami pots and so the potter, who I do not know, was probably taught brushwork by Danlami.
