SANAN RAI

Sanan Rai (clay pot in Tetun language), is a book about pottery making, a vanishing heritage in Timor-Leste. It was written by Jean Christophe Galipaud from IRD PALOC as a result of a collaborative research with the Secretary of State for Arts and Culture. David was commissioned in October 2013 to design the 3-language book, as well as acting as executive producer for the short film made by Victor de Sousa about the last active potters in the country that was presented as part of the exhibition.
