Google Celebrates Nigerian Potter, Ladi Kwali, With Doodle

Google on Wednesday celebrated Nigerian potter, Ladi Kwali, with a doodle on its home page.

Kwali was an educator, ceramicist, glassworker, and potter, who helped introduce the international community to the beauty of Nigerian art through intricately decorated earthenware designs.

She learnt pottery in her childhood and later developed her own style which included fabricating everyday containers ornamented with animal iconography.
