Try Mosaic art ...Mosaic is the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials. It is a technique of decorative art or interior decoration. Most mosaics are made of small, flat, roughly square, pieces of stone or glass of different colors, known as tesserae; but some, especially floor mosaics, may also be made of small rounded pieces of stone, and called "pebble mosaics

The making of pottery in Africa began around the 7th millennium BC and continues to this day in the various regions of the continent.

Clay was worked on entirely by hand and shaped and fashioned into the desired shape. A good example of this were the basketwork covers fitted over the pots, making them more functional and also more elegant.
