Disappointment at the potters

Went to Lumemo with Hashim today to see how the fabrication of filter pots is doing. I was quite disappointed to discover that although most of the work has been done, more than half of the prototypes have not been marked properly and are therefore of no use to us!! We are currently testing different mix ratios (clay/sawdust) to determine what mix we should use for our pots. We still managed to "save" half of the pots and we plan to do a burning on the 29th.

There is now a good reserve of clay, but we are very dependant on the owner of the place who still has to be there for anyone being able to work... Now being the period when all people go to their shambas (small farmlands), everything tends to take 10x more time than you would expect.
