The women potters of the Folona region of southeastern Mali fire thousands of pots weekly. But their product and practices are unique, unlike those of neighboring potters to the north and west. Barbara Frank's comparative analysis of production methods together with group and individual potter oral accounts suggests an answer to the Griot potters' origins.  506 pages.
