Samallie Kasirye

Samallie Kasirye was born in Uganda – East Africa in an extended community with ancient traditions of Music, Art, Craft and Rituals. Pottery is the craft which nurtures Samallie’s spirit, she is the only one in the family continuing this tradition.

From an early age Samallie began creating and making things. BUSEGA Pottery was established last year in the honour of the family pottery business in Kampala – Uganda, which ceased productivity when her father Mr. Martin Kasirye passed away last year at the age of 99.

Samallie produces an extensive range of organic domestic ware by using wheel throwing, hand building & slab work which is the glazed & decorated using lead-free pottery products.
