As a child watching his grandmother create pottery, Moses made his career choice early in life. “I would watch her for hours, fascinated by the movement of her hands as she worked the clay,” he recalls.Fast forward to 2016 and his biggest achievement came with the opening of his own studio in Mukono, a town 27km East of Kampala. “Although I had been practicing for 7 years, it is only recently that I felt ready to fly solo.”

Listening to him speak, one can see why the move was so timely. His distinctive monochromatic aesthetic has already made him one of the most recognizable ceramic brands in the region. “It is quite simple. To offer the best is not just talk for us. We seek perfection every step of the way – from clay preparation to second firing. Is there any other way one can achieve success?” he muses.
